An acrylic and mixed media painting on canvas titled Lucy’s Choice by New New painter Graham Peacock, executed in 1988. Thickly layered acrylics and mixed medias of paper and canvas are applied in stages, with carefully executed juxtapositions and color. The surface relationship is inspired by natural formations and the all over abstract composition of colors is inspired by Kenneth Noland, Morris Louis, Larry Poons, Jules Olitski, and Jackson Pollock. The work is presented with a box frame.
