Pattern Work 2

Ops Art -
Oil Pastel and Oil Paint on Board
2020 - 30 x 40

My head was lately filled with tessellations, patterns and OpArt due to lesson planning for my students. I have a deep love and respect those styles of art, but generally find them incompatible with my highly emotional creative process. This diptych was a nod to that conflict within me. My desire to sometimes force myself into a mold I don't really fit into. Ultimately I was really happy with the result. It felt like how I look when I am at a dinner party. Put together, but slightly askew.
