Large Scale Paintings
In 2002 I visualized the Stele paintings executed on a very large scale. This resulted in a series of paintings called Passage. (Click here to view the Passage paintings.) While creating each composition I imagined each quarter as a single, large Stele painting that is not complete without the other three quarters. Each painting is divided into quarters horizontally and seven divisions vertically. They all have a color palette and some dimensions in common. The first two of the large scale (81" X 187.5" oil on canvas paintings based on these watercolors is finished. When complete, these paintings are intended to work when viewed individually and as a group; and when viewing small sections of an individual painting, like walking down a passage.
