Paul Malone : Black Wave

Black Wave. 1999. Acrylic on plywood box: 300 x 180 x 50 cms.


'Black Wave' is a composite that consists of a panel type shape, a blue wave form and a smaller, shadow - like, cresting wave. The shapes, and the overall arrangement, almost completely detach themselves from the viewer's gravitational frame. The thin wax pencil horizon line drawn across the ensemble restores a sense of stability.
