An award winning work of
compelling depth and sensitivity, Nonliterary Allusion is a
provocative and captivating trek into the compelling frontier of
visual interpretation and nonlinear narrative.
Unbound by the restraints of
either abstraction or realism, this elegant work lingers in a timeless
universe of its very own. Thoughtfully conceived and delicately
fashioned, the work is a novel and refreshing inquiry into the essence
of symbolic representation.
The title - Nonliterary Allusion - is sort of long hand way of
suggesting that this work is a visual version of literary allusion
used by writers.
A captivating work done with a
tightly controlled pallete of pale blue and pinkish gray is
silhouetted by dark brown and a deep rusty red. This is contrasted by
black, white and gray.
“The arching background was
done intuitively without any real planning. I did however put
considerable consideration into whether or no to put the gray
rectangle in the foreground.” – Leonard Daniels

“A strong horizontal axis
intersecting with arcs give this work a pleasing dynamism that is
quite dramatic to view.” - American Juried Art Salon
Sweeping arcs and long
triangular points of dark brown and rust converge in the upper left
quadrant behind black rectangle and a cruciform of white. A small gray
rectangle to the left of center is intersected by a horizontal line of
white while a black line intersects the main cruciform. In the
foreground lies a gray rectangle.
