Reassembly – Red Heart of West River 

acrylic on canvas
24” x 30” 


Feel for a molten core beneath the mantle of the earth, deep, under the soaring plains; it is there, it is the heart of West River.  Seeking an underlying core led to a deceptively simple work dominated by pure and primary colors and the cube – a most basic form.  Belying the simplicity of surface is an intricate and shifting color formed space.  What may appear as a vast emptiness, a featureless void, the Great American Desert, is, with any attentive reflection, an exquisitely intricate wonder.
