Blue Gambit (Tetris Type)

41 h x 29 w

DESCRIPTION: gouache on Rives BFK printmaking paper, unframed

STATEMENT: Simonds applies paint with a sable brush, achieving beautiful translucency and depth of color. The painting grows with a build up of shapes and complex color relationships. She uses a special blotting technique, dabbing the myriad hues to create delicate, textured surfaces. In each piece, different arrangements of colored blocks, ovals, and arcs create a feeling of ordered transcendence. These images are anti-chaos, infused with luxuriant color and sublime, soft texture.
