Glowing geometric abstract with an earthy golden ground and overlapping geometric and industrial shapes of black, red and metallic gold. I used a grid composition and created depth with multiple layers. One of four paintings that can stand alone or work together.  Inspiration came from the midcentury modernist Mark Tobey, from the jazzy rhythms of the Gershwins and the gilded palette of Gustav Klimt.  Part of a series of abstract paintings named using musical terms.

Getting to Know Mandy

Mandy Main is an art historian and landscape painter based in the Southern California desert. She has long been passionate about 19th Century American landscape paintings, which has been influential in her artistic practice. Mandy works in series, generally three paintings at a time. Her process begins with a vision of a place she has been, but she takes creative liberties with the aesthetic details. The artist is captivated by light and shadow, and strives to instill her work with moody drama through the representation of these elements. Using layers of paint and glazes, Mandy achieves mesmerizing atmospheric depth, encouraging the viewer to gaze and be still.
