Told in mysterious applications of acrylic, Rosemary Cotnoir’s Celestial Components is an amalgamation of pure abstract mark-making. A deceptively translucent yet inescapably opaque patchwork of geometric forms is, at first glance (or, at least, my first), the foundation of the composition. However, as the eye adjusts to the picture, the blocks of glassy pigment appear superimposed upon a backdrop of enigmatic passages of diffused paint that rise from the depths of the canvas like colorful phantoms. However, the composition would seem incomplete without Cotnoir’s brilliant application of Jackson Pollock-like drips or splatters (maybe both?) of yellow and light blue acrylic. The speckled surface provides the painting an air of magic, a dreamy, delightful hallucination of unflinching abstraction that transfixes the viewer like a stary and surreal sky.
