Raymond Jonson

Artist: Raymond Jonson
This painting utilizes a similar concept to our stencil project. It relies on basic shapes and color to create the composition of the piece. There is a limited and dull color palette in the work with the red popping off the page and creating two focal points within the painting. These focal points help lead your eyes around the painting and take notice of the subtle pink and yellow rectangular shapes as well. The black in the back works as a background and also through the use of the negative space creates its own unique shape separate from the rectangular shape of the other pieces in the composition. I think this is a very successful painting and accomplishes a variety of ideas using only the few shape variations and colors.
