Barbe - geometric design on canvas

Barbe espagnole 55, 2012, mixed media on canvas, 96×50 inches.

Geometric contemporary art utilizing geometry in its curvilinear composition. Based on Spanish moss, the mixed media artwork conveys its mystery through thin layers of rubbing, washes and drips, depicting a Southern sense of light. The picture is built up on a grid using pencil, charcoal, oil pastel, ink and acrylic in black and white abstract art.  Braille dots add to sense of space and depth.
