'Unveil To Entice' - 2013   
Mixed Media
1. 30"x40" / 2. 12"x30"

This is a double piece that is in response to William Carpenters piece, 'Workbench". It shows the juxtaposition between the colors and the white. Almost like a curtain, the white area hides what the painting was before. It relates to Williams piece because it shows the depth of one layer to another as he did with the collage of workbench scraps. It expresses a deep sense of randomness as well as a sense of boldness that is intriguing to me. This piece also shows the relationship between the colors that are used in each separate canvas as they transition through one another. They communicate a sense of energy bursting through the layer behind, yet remain so calm as a result of the white top-layer.
