New Work: Saccades XIII Oil on canvas, 48 x 48 inches

Saccades XIII Oil on canvas, 48 x 48 inches
Dominique Boisjoli Fine Art, Santa Fe, NM  $8950 framed

I love these somewhat abstract Saccades works with their endless variations. For this piece, I wanted the yellow to be predominant but not accompanied by the usual birch or aspen tree markings. The idea was to create a forest with depth that allows this yellow glow surround.

There isn't any sky visible and that adds to the effect of a totally yellow view into this forest. The forest ground also is aglow with a number of colors that add to the overall effect but with color that is more modern, not green grass and ground. 

Overall, the effect is luminous and interesting everywhere, creating an effect where the eye never completely rests on a focal point.

About the Saccades Series shown here:
"Since the late 19th century, researchers have been aware of the phenomenon of saccades, the rapid movement of the eye as we shift our attention from one thing to another. As a result, vision itself is discontinuous. We construct a “map of reality” from saccades much as a film editor puts together a scene from individual camera takes."  From an article by the film maker Errol Morris, NY Times
