“Absolute: Connection”: Oil paint on beech wood. 16” x 8”. 8.7.19.

Three round elements of color sit behind a central twig. These circles are positioned where a weathered branch and the background meet. The largest circle is a slightly translucent shade of cool white. A smaller pale green circle marks the point of contact for the smaller chute of the twig.

The twig is frozen in a timeless bend, casting a stark ‘S’ shaped shadow to the right. The circles all have a unique quality, sharing in visual dominance. Their controlled geometry complement the organic twist of the twig. As the stick gets thinner, a green tint takes over the wood, indicative of tiny living fungi.
