Abstract: Artist's statement: "For this painting, I hoped to convey female subordination within a relationship. I attempted to convey this by creating a contrast between a deep space in which the male exists in and a cramped space that the female exists in. However, looking perhaps too closely at the thick build up of paint in the work of Hans Hofmann, I put far too much emphasis upon texture and lost much of the depth that was essential to conveying my message. I also attempted to create another contrast between the male and female through the colors in their respective environments, but again lost focus on color relationships due to my investment in the treatment of the surface. I was more successful in creating an active composition with my use of edges and line. Ultimately this piece proved to be a highly hesitant work of mine, which greatly diminished the relationship between the two figures that was the essential component of the piece. However with this piece I discovered the interesting effect of a figure responding to a pictorial (rather than environmental) element, which I hope to push further in future pieces." This is a digital photograph of Frank Beiser's painting. It was submitted as an assignment in the spring 2016 Intermediate/Advanced Painting class taught by Professor Erin Harmon.
