ANGELS IN FLAMES
Acrylic on Canvas
40"x 64" x 1.5" total unframed (quadriptych with four 40" x 16" panels)
Joan Mitchell, a painter I greatly admire made extensive use of the diptych and triptych format. This quadriptych carries the concept one step further. The multi-panel format can be seen as a metaphor for interpersonal relationships. Two or more objects that, while physically separate, still need one another to create a cohesive whole.
