Appropriating its palette from the tiles of traditional Burgundy Roofs and its composition from a classic Kenneth Noland painting Inner Way, Ondine recalls the great Maurice Denis quote, “Remembering that a painting – before it become a war horse, a naked woman, or an anecdote – is essentially a flat surface covered with colors assembled in a certain order.” Also the title of a poem by the French Romantic poet Aloysius Bertrand, the originator of modern prose poetry, Ondine explores how the avant-garde can become widely accepted to the point of turning generic through the passage of time. It's a translation from Dijon to New York, from a decorative-formalist language to artistic formalism of post-painterly abstraction–functioning as both a tribute and a commentary on our consumption of culture.

Framing option is black or maple painted wood, .75" wide flat face and 1 1.25" deep, with UV acrylic glass.
