Ivory and Obsidian is a series of paintings and drawings that captures the playful and dynamic bond between my two recently adopted huskies. watching their relationship grow, I became increasingly interested in the manor in which they would play noticing the speed and subtleties in their movements and expressions. I watched as fur flew into the air and bodies clashed seeming to almost merge into one another creating these abstracted forms of energy and gesture.
They run, bursting forth into the light. I study them as their forms merge from two beings to one. Anatomy and gesture evolve as they dance out of sight. Black and white, light and dark they dissolve into abstraction. A graceful battle, a moment caught in time. Do they fight for dominance, or play for fun?
