Pink and Green Cloth by ARoulette Pink and Green Cloth by ARoulette
This was probably the most minimal piece I did for this series. I really wanted to see how far I could push simplicity and still make it work. This piece was also hard to get a good reproduction of I hope it looks ok. Oil on panel 22"x29".

this is beautiful in a way i can't really put my finger on. it's my favourite of your series, simply because the composition seems to be the best. i love awkward position of the subject and the cable running along the ground.
really good work!

it works. oh boy, it DEFFINITELY works.
not only does the distortion of the body leave you wondering for a while to figure out what it is, it also works so well with making the whole painting and the massive emptiness in the painting balance and just...work! and i love the tones and colours that you have in all your paintings :)
the only thing that's bugging me a little bit is how to intepret the painting. i think i have an idea, but the title and your comment really still leaves me wondering what you were thinking when you did this...

It's always amazing to find people using some of the same imagery as yourself and realizing how many different ways the same image can be interpreted and translated...

i have a thing for pictures with lots of... is it negative space? or is that something else? anyways, you get what i mean =p

this is really great, the composition is great, and i think it seems quite emotional. i couldn't describe how though, anyways. i love it.

I like the way the colors balance out. I also dig your brush strokes. :)

I am a bit of a fan of negative space and this definitely wins my vote. The use of colour done very well and composition and positioning of the man's body is excellent. It is all rather wonderful, not forgetting your brilliant use of brushstrokes and lighting, which all together bring out the emotion in the piece. This is without doubt my favourite peice in your gallery. Lush stuff, keep it up! :thumbsup:
