oil on canvas, 48" x 60"

Influences that have not yet come together, or perhaps need to be pulled apart:

-  empty niches in Italy

-the open space of early Roman frescoes 

- is there a way to  give myself room to play with a void shape and its opposite on a flat surface?

-  Playing a bit with sacred geometry (golden section and underpainting based on geometric progression) that gently embeds an order in a field where my own musings about emptiness and form can take shape.
