Michael Bush

"Florida Windows"

Painting - Oil

96" x 60' x 3"

1980

South Regional Courthouse

 

Description

This series of ten panels, each measuring 98" X 48", of oil-on-wood panel, captures the time element of becoming - a stage of self realization. The painted surface is divided in half. Each half is occupied by a rectangle. Two vertical free forms flowing from one to the other half. The coloration of each panel varies: from a pale yellow to deep orange red. This series of painting is installed on a long wall at the main entrance hallway to the Courthouse.

Artist Statement

"I have looked to see what is beyond rather than to try and create that which is present. Windows are as they are named, a chance, one more chance or the last chance to see, for some, beyond the everyday."
