Acrylic on linen
135 x 110 cm
The most recognizable compositions of the paintings are the numerous parallel, encompassing, vertical lines applied across the linen. The lines are mainly composed with two colors: milky white brushstrokes superimposed on black, wider ones. At times blocks of ocher or woad would interrupt the black-white duos, as well as the rest of the painting. "Line Field" series at its initial stage to the artist was an experiment and exploration on the relationships between point, line, surface (2D), and eventually, spacial units (3D). Later on the artist was interest to explore the intersecting spaces (line over line, for example), the alternating representations of the "real" and the "virtual" (perhaps by factures), and what an art writer termed "formal aestheticism".
