This collage painting came out of a time of change in my personal life, during which I was seeking to redefine myself and simultaneously, my language of squares and rectangles. The squares eventually emerged, freed from their prior role in representing a real scene, in a new context of organic washes of color.
After years of using photographs I took on my travels as sources for my cityscapes, painting completely abstractly was new to me. Relying solely on intuition was exhilarating. I could trust my sense of balance and surprise. I felt like the painting's title.
Original collage painting available. Also: limited edition giclées of this work.
