Oil on canvas
84" x 60" x 1.5" unframed
Firstof three studies I did for the much larger Fig. XX. (14'x10'). These three paintings explore the classic retro shape of the old TV set. The rounded rectangle. This shape has for me the same elegance of the '61 Jaguar E-type or Eero Saarinen's TWA Terminal. But somehow it fits right in with 2019. The warm earthy background is covered in technobabble layers of copper, gold, cool white, and violet.
