About

Large abstract geometric painting with a neutral palette of beige, cream, and light green with accents of yellow, white, and black "Dorothy" made by Hudson Valley artists, Donise English, in 2020 Graphite, colored pencil, and gouache painting on paper mounted on canvas 60 x 60 inches unframed, 62.5 x 62.5 inches in a white wood floater frame Signed, verso Excellent condition and ready to hang This large abstract geometric painting was made by Hudson Valley based artist, Donise English, in 2020. The composition begins with a neutral toned background of beige and light green patterned with gray graphite box-like shapes. A geometric outline of small black, yellow, and white rectangles brings the viewer's eye into the foreground while referencing the artist's inspiration from architectural blueprints, maps, and quilt patterns. The painting on paper is mounted to canvas and complemented with a white painted wood floater frame. It's in excellent condition and ready to hang as is. Artist Statement: My work is about the way visual diagrams present information that describes how something is made or the way it is. I am interested in drawing and collaging multiple layers of information that refer abstractly to maps, architectural drawings and blueprints or patterns and structures found in such things as roller coasters, power lines and fences. I use gouache and collaged paper in a series of layers that are a visual and ideological response to the previous layer to define my pictorial space. For each piece I create a set of rules to follow about the use of a limited palette, a grid format, opacity of paper and whether a piece may include curving lines or maintain a rectilinear structure.
