ACRYLIC ON FABRIC
In the final decade of Omiros’ life and career, he abandoned the figure entirely, embarking on his period of Pure Abstraction. He circled back in time, fully extending the thread of his oeuvre to the era when he first came to Paris, painting only abstractly.
In 1041, sweeping brushstrokes evince an ethereal tone using a thick, opaquely applied painting technique.
There is a balance between large gestural movements and delicately placed marks, creating a tension within the composition—one that is mesmerizing in its circular, spiraling, and calligraphic movements.
Color is the primary motivating force in the emotional content of this work, wherein layers of pure pigment combine in ways that express both a distinct rhythmic quality while simultaneously expounding the chaotic beauty and spontaneity of the universe.
1041 affects the viewer personally and deeply with its subtle use of hues that blend into one another, such as the rosy shades of pink and soft sea-foam greens, the sudden bursts of richly pigmented blue and deep red.
Omiros uses color alone to communicate his inner vision of space and the “virtual” particles rapidly bursting into and out of existence in a visible display of consciousness, with the lighter and softer hues placed on the outer edges of the composition, and darker tones focused away from the edges of the canvas.
