“Conglomular”is a unique portrait half-buried in a dense, detail-rich composition. The panel is alive with waves, segments, and sections of abstract geometric imagery in bold, bright colors. Thick magenta drips were manipulated to flow upwards from the bottom of the panel, both to add interest and to create a new foreground-- which further merges the facial features with the background.
This piece is a tribute to human individuality and represents how both the individual and the surroundings are equally complex and become a part of one another.
Though this is a small panel it is sure to be thought-provoking and demand attention. This thoroughly contemporary, original painting was completed in acrylic with tight detail and care on a quality gallery wrapped canvas with .75" stretcher bars. The patterns continue over the thick edges of the painting so there is no need for framing. The painting includes a hang-wire and is ready to hang.
