Series: NEW GEOMETRIES
Conceptual patterned, woven mono-prints.

This piece is a color field experience and a play on words if you will regarding our current cultural differences. Each separate square of the RED STATE image is a composited view of a sunset over the ocean while the Blue State image is a composited view of a sunset over the desert.  Each color field is replicated 256 times and slightly modified in intensity. A unifying central image was then placed over each separate but equal background to center the field of view in each. Subtle horizontal and vertical lines of varying widths separate out each square within the backgrounds and are aligned with the overall weave pattern.

This was one of the first in a series of woven mono-print work produced and is similar to the normal PROCESS of weaving images but the paper has not been coated with gel nor overlain with varnish. The fully realized woven piece was then mounted at the edges onto 4 ply museum board to preserve its longevity and to maintain the weave pattern. The piece is professionally framed in brushed silver metal (Dimensions: 1/2" face x 1-1/2" deep). A shadow box insert containing the artwork is then secured within the frame and is composed of a 1/8" UV plexiglass face, 3/8" deep black plexiglass standoffs (shadow box), the woven piece mounted on museum board, and a 1/8" masonite backing.
