"Birthday" 2005

28" by 60"
Acrylic on Canvas

This acrylic piece, with it's central spatial compression of the figurative marks, is the direct antecedent of the "Population" painting at top.

This was part of pushing the figurative references to the absolute edge of disappearance, and the landscape reference, as in many of the works in the last two years, is a nearly empty, imaginary space - the light is simply an actor, not a lamp or a sun, or even a specific source.

Collection of Green and Yalowitz, Seattle
