Variations on my painting "Open 16"

Painting experiments

My recent paintings have experimented with inferred space. I will add some of these and earlier experiments in oil painting to this blog. The above animation shows variations on my “Open 16” work.

Below is a variant of “Open 6”

These are recent examples of a series of paintings that I began as etchings in 2001, then digital paintings in 2004. Nowadays they are oil on canvas.
