Untitled, September 5th, 2013. Acrylics on oak panel, 28.7 cm x 45 cm

The question of composition keeps coming up, as it should, at all times when starting, or altering existing images. With two lines, the possibilities are manifold. With the addition of colour, as two lines gives three areas, there is an even vaster array of possibilities. The interplay between these parts gives a similarly vast array of responses, in the eye as well as in the mind. Our opinion on decorative aspects play a role in how we judge something like this, but also our associations influence "what it is". The choices the artist makes are not insignificant, and indeed daunting when creating any work.
