As often happens with a style sequence, the later works become more relaxed and expressive. For this particular piece, compared to the others, almost whimsical.
Though it’s not uncommon for me to revisit previous styles and techniques of work (as I will with Composition 280), all I will say for now is that the mosaic motif has likely had it’s run. But with more than any other stylistic flirtation I have had of late, I’m leaving this one convinced it will return.
It will be interesting to see when that happens and what form it takes.
In the meantime, since the completion of Composition 279, there has been an unexpected and inspired creative tangent within the Walking Wave series and the results will be the subjects of at least six upcoming blogs in 2015.
