This one, entitled Omringen uses symmetry to get a bit of a different composition. I’m having a good time using these shapes to convey different compositions and aesthetics as I work on them. This is essentially one shape duplicated at different sizes, and overlapping groups on top of one another to create different shades of color. The design is ever-changing, which is quite exciting to see.
The works in this style thus far have been sketches at low resolution, but as I gain a bit of momentum I will be trying out larger scale works to see how much more a larger canvas can handle. More real estate means more shapes.
I created another image earlier today entitled De Aanleggen ’08 which was the first in this color palette inspired by harvest gold fridges and avocado green stoves of the 1970s.
