gouache on paper installation

About the Work
A grouping of works on paper, small gouache abstractions that when connected make up a “Fluttering”. These abstractions are caught in the moment of transition; a twisting or a developing that evokes movement, a falling forward and backward, a shifting depth of color. One can take in the picture as a whole, its shape and movement, or study each element as a separate entity.
