Painting and Tapestry at Sullivan Goss Gallery, Santa Barbara

 Announcement image: Parasol | 2017 | 16 x 12 inches | Oil on Linen

A show of painted studies around a 27 foot tapestry inspired by Seurat's Grande Jatte. The shoreline scene depicts Ventura's promenade and is populated with figures along the beach near Surfer's Point. The texture of the tapestry is a mosaic of colored patches that refer to Seurat's pointillist touch that itself was derived from Jacquard weaving.
