The Flight, by Roxanne Grooms
The Flight, by Roxanne Grooms, 17" x 14", Acrylic, Colored Pencil and Hand Sewing on Paper, Unframed
As in all of my paintings, the circle becomes personified to take on a role. In The Flight, it's about the downward gaze at 20,000 feet. Imagine what is seen and the impression that it makes, especially in this day and age.
Curated Description: The Flight is an intense abstract composition done in mixed media on sewing paper. The green tones of the palette try to compete with the yellow background, the hand sewing, and the black drawing lines for dominance. The abstract form is reminiscent of a creature, challenging the viewer to identify the different parts of the piece.
