My brand new series, Forma Rotonda, is the addition of the Round form to the angular shapes, squares and rectangles, that I have been painting since late 2016 with my Urban Summer/Urban Winter Series. The dynamic that they bring is undeniable, the energy and the movement, and the completion of a form that meets the viewer of the canvas. The rectangular shape, especially when it runs from top to bottom, or side to side on the canvas, implies infinity, infinite linear-ness. With the addition of the circle, or round shape, the story is concluded in the form. It begins and ends. To some that is comforting, to others, they want more. And when you have both shapes on the same canvas, it can satisfy both philosophies, or needs. The two geometric ideas can play off of each other and provide a beginning, a middle and an end. To some, that is the real complete philosophy.
