The 36

A few years after the completion of the single-color paintings, I set out to create a second set of six, and this set evolved into a much larger work.  The top row is a vision of a role model of mine.  The second, a detailing of the problems I saw in myself when I aspired to be more like that model.  All subsequent rows each address one of those problems and my solution do it.

If each of us is "light", this painting was about running myself through a prism to examine my constituent colors, correcting the mistakes and reintegrating them.  In the final row above the colors of one painting start to bleed across the individual squares.

The final work of 36 12"x12" paintings is not yet complete.

Detailed scans of each are shown below.
