Acrylic on linen
180 x 150 cm
The barely legible background is composed by the vertical, encompassing lines painted in scarlet and ocher (the "ocher" color might as well be the original color of the linen). Across the organized background, spontaneous brushstrokes in scarlet, woad, orange (and more) are applied frequently, disrupting the legibility of the background, or even the entire composition. "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".
