Series Title: The Bacchae- Pentheus, Dionysus, and Thyrsus
Medium: Oil Enamel on Masonite
Size: 48″ x 24″ each
I did not intend intend for these paintings to be a series but when I placed them side by side this past Friday, I could not get over the affect caused by them as one unit. I guess you can chalk it up to gestalt if you lean that way, but regardless these painting vibrate together. I’ve named it the Bacchae as it is a celebration of so much of what I have been working toward with my foray into painting. Instinctual forms that embrace the materiality of the medium and create a visual experience that surpass the sum of its parts.
