This new painting represents a departure from the circle-grid Nymph paintings I’ve been doing.  Chancing to see of one of Donald Judd’s stacked wall sculptures got me thinking about the appeal of regularity in so-called minimal art of the last century.  I decided to employ a precisely measured arrangement of stripes using the watercolor on polypropylene.  The way the paint pooled within the stripes surprised me.   So, here is a painting in which the stripes are regular (3″ stripes of paint and 3″ spaces between) but the placement and overlapping are intuitive.  There’s a dance between the chaotic flow of paint, the striped grids and the translucent overlaps.
