Magna on raw canvas-triptych. 72” x 72”. Artist’s collection.
I was reading Yukio Mishima and being tutored Nihongo by Tachan Ruff. My Great Grandfathers Sword was on my mind as were various brush marks from my Kanji practice. The pattern for this is from a Hindu silk. The shapes in negative formed by the white “strokes”were like architecture while dancers jumped across the field. Matisse was also on my mind.
