Wall with Petunia, 2022, Oil, acrylic, and ink on Yupo, 60″ x 108″
Against the weedy, vegetative, imaginary pattern on the studio wall hangs a dark petunia in its own poster. Perhaps the poster celebrates a famous artist. This petunia is the plant form, black and precise, that invites our discovery of other things. Color navigates through structures, making space and asserting the presence of things awaiting our recognition. First shown in Santa Fe at Strata Gallery, 2022.
