Project dedicated to discarded paintings. There are theories that the eye and movement of an artist (or viewer) is naturally drawn toward the dimensions of the golden rectangle. I have been exploring old paintings that I find in the street. Intrigued by the fact that somebody discarded an image, my desire is to find points of beauty inside something rejected. What makes an image appealing? This series is a geometric investigation of form and placement which involves cutting up and recreating street discarded paintings using the Fibonacci golden ratio formula.
Donation to Fairbanks School Auction
first and third 36.3 x 58.7 cm, center 33.3 x 58.7 (not a golden ratio… just what was left)
This tryptich was cut after painting Fibonacci shapes on top of a painting salvaged from the throw-away pile of a frame shop going out of business in my neighborhood.
The tryptich was donated to my sister´s auction to raise money for the abandonded Fairbanks School she is rehabilitating as a cultural center.
