A small yet bold and complex piece that will complement any home. Sharp yet muted tones of gray arranged in shapes, lines and orbs. The Gray Period is a series of square pieces that explore the interplay of contrasts. Black and white. Dark and light. Day and night. Yin and yang. Shadows in every shade. The shapes and layers that occurred in the process of painting resemble cell diagrams in microbiology as well as metropolitan cityscapes. Each piece has boxes, circles, a pattern of parallel lines that suggests overlapping dimensions. The balance between the white, black, and grays in between.
