Seeding Ground is an acrylic painting on cotton canvas. It represents a field of unremarkable plants after the growing season. Visual texture—lines, spatters, scrapings—evoke rough, dry membranes that show no evidence of summer flowering.
Yet, the dominant element is a stark, almost surreal color scheme. The extreme, dark background; the acid yellow-green heads, the contrasting purple stalks. These colors have an electricity that speaks less of death and decay and more of charged atomic particles.
This painting speaks of the constant, invisible business of dormancy and regrowth.
