Fulcrum in Green

36x36 inches

rice paper and acrylic over canvas

A very small, modeled rectangle of green to the lower left of center is the fulcrum point of this painting. I originally observed this idea in some 1920’s paintings by the deStijl painter Georges Vantongerloo where slightly offset large rectangular forms were held together by a very small rectangle created by the remainder of space left between these several shapes where they converge together. I often think of these points as a focal point of the composition
