Rita - Terra Cotta (triptych), acrylic on canvas, 48" x 108", 2012.

Peach-Biege (Triptych), acrylic on canvas, 48" x 108", 2005.

These paintings reveal the structure of texture from both systematic and a random repitition, and how depth can be simultaneously created from flatness.  The flatness of the picture plane prevails.
