Something New

Words from the Artist: 

The title of this piece, “Something New”, is a play on words as this painting is heavily influenced off of my previous piece “Rooftop Afternoon” and is in fact something old and seen before. However, I think there is freedom and room for new exploration and creativity when repeating a piece. For instance, the same blues and whites were used but they were layered on top of and stretched into new shapes. Additionally, I was also able to play more with scribbling and layering. The combination of colors that were created in the diagonal bar space is satisfying and full of nuance.
