In this painting, layers of red and orange dominate the composition by overlapping and enveloping each other. The composition juxtaposes this meeting with edges of raw, unpainted muslin. The light blue lines are not brushstrokes, but evidence of a larger underlayer of blue paint, typical of Prekop's intentional underlying structures.
② Represented by:
Zak Prekop combines deft brushstrokes with subtle use of color to create carefully balanced abstract compositions. He frequently employs underlying structures in his paintings that he builds upon with freeform and premeditated textures. Prekop’s work has an improvisational look, but closer observation reveals the careful consideration of every element.
