This abstract art painting entitled “Highway” was created in 1998. The artwork utilizes cut canvas and acrylic paint to create a layered effect that adds a unique element of physical depth. The black and white stripes evoke a sense of confinement, while the familiar black bands with fragmented yellow lines are reminiscent of highway roads. The abstract art was built and painted organically, one layer at time, from back to front. Some areas of canvas are even painted from behind, so coloring is consistent on the layers that fold back on themselves to reveal the other side of the canvas. Similar to massive highway systems in metro areas, the roads and lines twist and turn into an unforgiving maze of paths.
