Red and Green 1-4, 1991, acrylic on canvas, ea. 10 x 8 inches. The red and green* are closer in value than in these photos and vibrate pretty seriously. The "obnoxious Op" factor is critical to these (not previously exhibited) paintings. I had a dream last night about a group of paintings that looked like this--only they were much more elaborate, on shaped panels that followed some of the contours.

*turquoise green, which the camera and possibly your screen makes appear more as a blue.

awesome, but what green?

The camera shifts the turquoise green to the turquoise blue. It also depends on your monitor. My laptop makes it bluer--I added a note for those who trust monitors over words.

Thanks, Thor. The bottom one is the most cabalistic. The Way of the Mutant Sephiroth.

A lot of saturation going on there. I really like them.
