An acrylic and mixed media painting on canvas for Lucy Baker from fellow New New painter Bruce Peirmarini, executed in 2001. Black and white pools are juxtaposed over warm and exciting colors with three dimensional forms creating dialogue for viewing. These odd forms promote the interface of light and heavy, fragile and formidable, and degrees of clarity.
