In the series Intervals I continue my exploration of repeated elemental images within small-scale hard-edged panel paintings. Dense rounded forms and their corresponding spare rectangles of paler colors combine and stagger to create an intimate composition, a chord or a harmonic. The allusion to music is intentional, though in this case loose and modest. Tone, pitch, value, harmony, movement, texture- these are qualities and ideas used interchangeably in painting and music. Here I am adding the idea of the interval- the space or difference in pitch between shapes and notes.
