Artwork #3 - System of Affection - Oil on Canvas - 18" x 24" - Original artwork - Abstract Expressionism


Title: System of Affection

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

Inspiration for the work:

Injustices and World affairs when systems lack the 'heart' element.

The concept of 'affection' makes it a human system where affection is love. Lines were arranged like a circuit board to symbolize a 'system' and black and white paints to symbolize one that is true and kind.

It was created on a gallery wrapped canvas by first priming and then layering black and white paints. The white lines were created by stamping wooden strips to form a systematic pattern.

With a matte finish, it measures 24 inches tall, 20 inches wide and .5 inches deep.

The sides are painted black.

It comes with a Certificate of Authenticity signed and dated by the artist.

This piece belongs to a body of work I created in the first 5 years of professionally painting. Each year is a series. This is the 2013 series.

This body of work was not available for purchase until now.

'System of Affection' was completed November 27, 2013.

It is the 3rd piece out of 5 pieces created in the 2013 collection: Looking in, Looking out - series 1.


Art speaks to those who listen. They say it is supposed to make us feel something. I hope this piece makes an emotional connection with you, be it happiness of a memory or other feelings it may evoke.
