This piece was an attempt to find harmony between expressive, spontaneous layers of abstract painting by containing them within the stencilled geometric rings of a target, which evokes the spirit of Abstract Expressionist pioneer Jasper Johns.
I find the contrast between the loose, expressive freedom and the tight, controlled order to be very satisfying when painting, and it ties into my deeper sense of how I perceive nature and the laws of the universe. Nothing is completely chaotic, and nothing is entirely structured. As humans, we exist in the space between these two extremes.
