Remember the color wheel? Using red, yellow, and blue, you can mix various shades of all other colors and, notoriously, you can mix them all together to get…mud! But not all reds are equal, nor blues, nor yellows; the combinations that result from mixing different primaries create distinctly different color signatures.
It's no secret that I love bright colors. My new work reflects that; but, in addition to my favorite primary colors (Quinachridone Magenta, Hansa Yellow, and Pthalo Blue), these paintings also incorporate an important new set of primaries: memory, imagination, and extrapolation.
I'll be showing my new work at Annie Kaill's Fine Art Gallery on Front Street in Juneau on Friday, August 2nd, with a reception beginning at 4:30pm. I hope to see you there!
