Exploring the properties of color through repeated configurations

This series of paintings demonstrated horizontal configurations of interrelating bands of color. The problem is to present a composition, within a rectangular framework, allowing for maximum color juxtaposition within a severely non-representational format. Color is the dominant motif and the key to the composition. The system devised is one in which maximum juxtapositions are possible. Since there is no fixed point of focus, the color causes optical expansions and contractions over the whole surface. This optical “excitement” is one aim of the exploration into color.
