Migration is my multi-panel experiment working with abstracted saturated & semi-saturated color on a pale background.
There’s lots of things I like about it, but I don’t feel it’ll be the end-all of my efforts with that goal ( deep colors against a pale backing ).
Also I’m still working / struggling with color/shape/pattern transitions panel to panel.
All I ever had to worry/think about before was just the one flat surface in front of me, lol!
But I’m doing several of these 10×20 inch panel groupings before moving on to another size to try out. I won’t hide it, I have “lots” of regular stretched canvas inventory I want to experiment on and use up before going on to some chose size ( or 2 ) of gallery wrapped canvas.
And if there’s one thing I’ve quickly realized I need to accept if I want to get comfortable with polyptychs – the communal relationship of multi-panels is as different from working one canvas, as being a solitary artist vs an artist in a group endeavor, ie, theatre ensemble, dance troupe, band, etc. – ie – the solitary pieces of the puzzle that’s a multi-panel work of art are solo works learning to mesh with their partner-panels while keeping their own integrity.
Below, showing Migration in my art room it’s a little more apparent —
Migration hangs alone, as a whole, and yet becomes of a piece among the similar yet distinct work.
Maybe, with all the world’s problems of people getting along, this is all an avoidable parallel.
How can / could we even begin to create something totally distinct from what we’re part and parcel of – being an individual among so many other pieces of the human family, the Earth family, the universe of families….
Above is a detail from one of the panels.
Given a bit more time, in the relatively near future I hope, past tax time, surgeries, etc etc etc, lol! I hope to once again be able to show more, think more about, feel more deeply and longer, about the art streaming through my hands from my heart into sight on a lean flat surface reflecting just about anything we’re capable of allowing to come forth 🙏
Stay well everyone! Evidently there’s many mysteries still lurking, glimmering, teasing, from the long shadows of our senior years ❤️
And if you’re a young’un, then just go with the flow & don’t worry about it. You’ll slow down enough one day to begin to catch glimpses of the magic we’re truly all made of 💕
