2011, 30″ x 60″, urethane original painting on hand-ground metal
In a metal mood, I created NEXUS, my second painting for 2011, in celebration of my 50th birthday. She embodies the energy of creation captured in a painting. She is a vortex – a force from which all things come into being. NEXUS shifts and dances in the light as her appearance shifts with the changing light. Walk past her and the grinds within the metal create a wave of energy seen through the figure and background. Her gloves are painted in an opaque pigment, hiding the grinds and creating a different illusion altogether.
