white string collage series, collage no. 2

This series was inspired by a chance encounter with an Ellsworth Kelly piece at the Philadelphia Museum of Art during a short weekend in Philly this spring. I went to the museum to take a quick pass through the Cy Twombly exhibit, which was wonderful and perspective-changing, but in an adjacent room was a small Ellsworth Kelly collection. A single framed canvas with a symmetrical geometric shape formed from string caught my attention. it was white on white, so the entire effect was created by texture and shadow, and i thought, “I want to try that.”
