systems of space.
i'm in love with alexander kori girard. the abstract pieces from his "systems of space" series have an almost-symmetrical-but-not-quite quality that i love, and aside from the strong color combinations that he employs, i enjoy discovering objects in the abstractions, like fireplaces or pinball machines. he also blends these techniques with collage using old photographs. the "systems in space" pieces are done in gouache (one of my favorite mediums), which is even more impressive when you learn that the paintings are about 2' x 3' - no easy feat to get color that flat and even at that scale! check out more of his work here.
