Gail Peter Borden, ‘STACK SERIES 2’, 2013, TWO x TWO

estimated retail value: $2,200

By combining color and geometry, Borden creates interesting formal relationships in pictorial space. In Stack Series 2, a bright rectangular volume mysteriously occupies the desaturated, desert-like ground. There is a dynamic tension in Borden’s composition, as the two-point perspective draws one in, yet a limited amount of information keeps the viewer at a distance.
