A touch of color

We just took advantage of 20 x 200‘s great sale and bought this print by Gary Petersen. Check out his other work here. I love the mix of bright and muted colors, and I’m drawn to the geometric yet playful shape of the painting.  We’ve been eyeing this for a while and finally took the plunge.

I wish the one below was also for sale on 20 x 200 – it’s pretty wonderful.

Here’s how he describes his work:

I am interested in geometric abstraction that reflects our vulnerability and uncertainty in the world. I’ve always been interested in the line, how it contains, defines and suggests. Color is very important in my work. It allows the somewhat familiar forms to become personal and subtly eccentric.

My longtime interest in early 20th century abstraction and the notion of the “cosmic” merges with a California/pop sensibility. What develops is a way for abstract painting to still be engaging.
