Aspects of Distancing relates to the social situation in 2020. We are all aware of the space between us. This painting glows in the layers of red , gold and black in the almost shimmering backgroud. It can be viewed as aspects of a portrait. The collaged female form provides the allusion to physical embodiment, while the block of oil sets the emotion. The line/rule/ mouth/portal gives the intellectual component. The sliver of a cloud represents the spiritual , changeable and mysterious. The cloud also creates a triangulation with the 2 white spots, subconciously keeping your eye roving in the picture. The two, curtain-like swipes on each side keep the energy on this stage.
