Paul Cezanne said, “There is a logic of colors, and it is this alone, and not with the logic of the brain, that the painter should conform.”
This body of work is a continuation of my ongoing practice that began with a meditation on the perception of nature and has evolved into the nature of perception. Especially the perception of color and more to the point, the nuances of artist pigments as they apply to the painting process. Geometric shapes are merely a vehicle to give form to visual thought and explore formalistic considerations of each composition. As a painter, color is the logic that informs the process. Stephen P. Curry.
