Binary Triptych (#1219/1220/1221), each 14" x 14", ink and watercolor suspended in polyvinyl resin glue on wood panels.

Binary -
Consisting of two
Involving a relationship between two alternatives
A whole composed of two

Triptych -
A set of three panels side by side bearing pictures or the like

Each module of this triptych is composed of two color sets - the first set being two vertical rows on the left in which dominant hues are arranged in a consecutive order. The dominant hues are repeated in the second two rows with different formulas to make an alternate pair.
This strategy allows for maximum optical variety while setting up a resonance between the pairs that unifies the individual modules and sets up a rhythm carrying through the triptych as a whole.

Complicated to explain; and that's why i suppose they say a picture is worth quite a few words....

As of this writing, this set of paintings is available through Fresh Paint Art in Culver City, CA.
