OMIROS. "997". 40x32 Inches. Free Shipping.
ACRYLIC ON FABRIC
Vibrant and resplendent, 997 exhibits all of the characteristics Omiros sought to demonstrate in his Pure Abstraction period.
In this composition there is no sense of alluded figuration or overly punctuated and patterned mark-making present.
Omiros’ palette is equally free from the restrictions of a conventional Delacroix color wheel, using a range of highly saturated violet, blue, yellow, orange, and pink hues.
In 997, colors splash against the surface of the canvas, spreading out from their point of contact in all directions.
There is a particular volatility to the composition, arising from the sketchy marks made by Omiros and his choice to layer many colors within and against one another.
While 997 presents a more playful tone than other compositions from this period, there is still a definitive sense of seriousness and tension about it, created through the arrangement of colors and forms that appear at odds with another.
