Jujiro (Crossroads): monotype, collage and stitching on paper, 30″ x 20″, 2013, $850 (sold)

This piece is all about warmth, in rusty red, burgundy, and orange. I took my color palette from my photo of a rusty, pitted concrete surface, then built layers of monotype prints on top. Pinched oblong shapes seem to float over the surface, while thin threads of stitching crisscross the piece from top to bottom. I enjoy exploring how transparency and opacity interplay to give the viewer time to rest and just “be” with an abstract composition. (Part of the Urban Skin series.)
