Created in a format using less conventional measurements that I had not used in my studio for quite some time, this piece came quickly and with furious resolve. It was a complete breath of fresh air and inspired many collages and works on paper shortly after its completion. The actual surface of the painting uses several types and pieces of canvas that were combined using various methods and treated with varnished, scraped, and sanded mixed media compounds in order to create an interesting surface from which to build the space and imagery. This piece also marked a return to a combination of three-dimensional, mixed media forms that created a wonderful combination of linear and organic elements that are almost lyrical in their relationship within the abstracted "setting."
