No.310, 2009, Acrylic and ink silk-screened on shaped panel. M Scantling
In 1979, during the full bloom of the Southwestern Art craze, I painted a small series of Chief’s Blanket designs on large shaped canvases. Although I was pleased with the paintings, I always felt I should have expanded the series, and explored the idea further. No.310 marks my return to the skewed canvas after 30 years. I like how the shape of the support changes the perception of the work as a whole – adding another dimension to the composition. I think this is going to be fun.
