Abstract

The main purpose of my work was to explore the properties of various painting media, principally those of synthetic composition and at the same time to explore and extend the color range of my palette in order to reflect attitudes of the theme. The subject was selected because of the unlimited possibilities in composition through the use of the contrasting active and quiet aspects of the city. The paintings are representational abstracts which I have tried to make function as well-organized compositions without completely destroying the realistic content. Working with a subject-oriented theme makes each painting a new problem and, therefore, each painting is discussed separately in terms of compositional elements, color relationships and materials employed.
