Thanks John! Your response to my work is always so spot-on!

Thanks that is a great compliment as I love her work!

You are welcome. I don't usually reveal if there are any representational elements in my work, but the Slant Step was an iconic found object. The curator of the exhibition asked contemporary artists to respond.

The article that I included in the original description explains the Slant Step and illustrates it. I took that image and repeated it throughout the painting, altering its color and its interaction with the spaces around each image.

Hi John and Chunbum, Thanks to you both for your insights and appreciation of this painting. This is one of the more geometric, grid-like works I've made. What would happen pictorially if I repeated the image of the Slant Step throughout the painting? Thanks again!

Love your description of the pairing of Linhares and Diebenkorn with this painting!!

Thanks so much!

Thank you!

Thanks so much!

Dear Joseph, My apologies on the tardy response to your astute observations from last November. I am glad you know the Pozzo ceiling. It is an endlessly rewarding composition for my process. Are you suggesting that I make the "things" that you see more explicit? Thanks again, Gina

Thanks again. I don't normally think about the Futurists, but speed and movement are key goals!

Thanks John! Love your "carefully controlled chaos"!!

Yes, I felt a little "guilty" creating this triptych, given how awful this moment is. Thanks again!

Thanks Lorena! Just reading your comment now!

Thanks John. My desire to hover between representation and abstraction is key to this work. Thanks again!

Thank you!

Thank you!!

Thanks John! I appreciate the historical references to the Futurists as well as the AbEx movement.

Thank you Chuck!

Thanks Elise for your close reading of "wave". The connection to music is very important to me so thanks for bringing it into your comments.
