Nest, Circa 1975
Acrylic and Collage on Paper
22 x 30 in
“Nest” is a collage-painting which began by improvising with pre-painted dark blue triangular papers which resulted in a closed-structure of shallow depth. I brushed washes of warm color into that container and discovered an expanding free-form shape. I noticed a yin/yang situation developing in which the geometric structure shelters the transparent mass of delicate color. All the nests I had ever seen along with a few I touched, flooded my mind. The title came quickly.
