ACRYLIC ON FABRIC
Omiros uses highly potent, pure tones to build his composition in 1151.
Shades of yellows, violets, and reds move in waveform across the canvas without effort. There is no observer yet. They are free in the plein-aire openness that dares to be embraced and coalesced by the observer effect.
The dark tones absorb the sudden bursts of bright yellow and orange that seem to appear and disappear.
The overwhelmingly light palette that Omiros favored in previous works is not emphasized here.
Instead, there is a more serious consideration for color, with a focus on the push-and-pull effect created by pairing complementary colors such as yellow and violet, blue and orange.
1151 is seemingly a meditation on the human condition in that the lighter colors represent the outward appearance of the self, while the darker hues are indicative of inner, private lives.
Omiros’ vision is sharp, and he is able to perceive his free space in a strong manner. The colors acquire virtues such as perspective, harmony, purity, simplicity, and beautiful non-figural form.
