Glimmering Dawn

A tripartie composition that carries the tone and atmosphere of the imagery into the twentieth century.

The attitudes and motions of the figures and forms appear defined by webs of fire-lit strings emerging from a semi-sphere with an umbrella shape of a nuclear bomb or explosion. Menacing lines tangle the spanned wings of a bird and extend themselves over the surface with intense forms and textures. 

The tripartite planar structure is dominanted by the physical presence of four figures whose postures and gestures orient the shapes and forms of other figures, and blend the varying relationships with their surroundings. The space separating the three planes reveals suggestion of sensuous figures flowing with inner matter.
