The Chaos series of a contemporary, abstract, acrylic and ink on canvas painting is based on the uncontrolled encroachment of shanty life on the periphery of cities. The series was initially inspired by the Favelas above Rio de Janeiro where unplanned structures have been built atop one another on the side of hills, which surround the city. Subject matter becomes more design and pattern than representation of images. This particular favela focuses on the warm end of the pallet by using yellow, red, lavender and browns with pops of blue and green to move your eyes up and out of the canvas. This fine art painting is on gallery wrapped 2.5 canvas and ready to hang.
