Medium: acrylic and mixed media on canvas

Size: 80” H x 30” W

Year: 1987

Location: Mass Transit Administration Office

Description: In this large acrylic and mixed media painting on canvas, artist Rosanna Saccoccio used a technique of extruding paint from a container to draw directly onto a predetermined area of the composition to create a design, in this case the cross symbol within the diamond shape and the X form.  In addition, the extruded paint provided textural variation to the surface of the  work.  This artwork is installed at the Mass Transit Administration Building.

Artist statement: "This is a work of a non-objective statement in high intensity of colors influenced by African and American Indian art."
