OMIROS. BEACH VOLLEYBALL. 36.5X49 Inches. Free Shipping.
ACRYLIC ON CANVAS
Beach Volleyball depicts a brightly hued palette of pinks, yellows, blues, and oranges, four figures are depicted participating in a game of volleyball.
Two parallel white lines cut across the top center of the composition horizontally, marking the placement of the net, thereby separating the four figures into groups of two on each side.
The ball is shown in the top left of the scene, as one of the players exerts her arm towards it.
The spacing of the bodies and their gestures demonstrates the tension among them as they compete. In the frenzy of fear of loss and hoping to win, the vivid colors reflect this emotional state of being in their movements.
Omiros at the crossroads of figuration and abstraction achieves the equanimity point: zero gravity. Only in the physics-free space of abstraction could one play volleyball thusly.
