Whales Atrium (a Painting Series)

One of my weirdest (and by weird I mean quirky and fun) painting series was the abstract group of paintings that I did in 2010 and which I called “Whales Atrium”*. In this series I played around with various acrylic media and additive in a very exploratory and undirected way. Other than the lack of any direction other than to experiment, the common element to the 12 paintings in this series is the size – all works are on 30 by 30 cm (12 inch) hardboard panels.

Don’t try to read too much into the titles of these works, they were largely an afterthought.

* I am still waiting for someone to “get” the significance of this series title. Let me know if you think you do.
