Surrounded by Values, 2018

Oil on canvas  
60 x 80 in

This piece began as an abstraction using various hues of reds, yellows and charcoal. I let it rest for a few months, then returned with color blocking of pure reds and yellows, painting from the outside in. As I neared the center, this figure began to come out of the underpainting, so I let it take hold and provided a bit of definition with shadow. The numbers solved a compositional challenge, allowing the eye to wander throughout the piece, while bringing a bit of my CFO background into the work, as well as an allusion to the discussion of values surrounding us today.
