Gate Series #16
50 x 50 cm
Acrylic on canvas
My gate series paintings are inspired by architectural shapes, forms and patterns on buildings. The elements of lines, colors and textures are arranged geometrically or in hard edge shapes to show the sense of structures. In this painting shows a simplification of Balinese door arch. Door, gates, arches all represent transitioning from one place to another. Either another room, from outside to inside, or it can be from the everyday drab world into a magical existence.
