Kerguelen Quadrilogy

Kerguelen Quadrilogy

map art, Ile Kerguelen Island, Indian Ocean, French Southern and Antarctic Lands, Territoire des Terres australes et antarctiques françaises, jfwoa

The shape of Kerguelen Island a french possession in the Indian Ocean, alternately known as “Desolation Island” (as coined by Captain Cook, its second visitor) is repeated and mirrored four times here.
The blue-and-violet background pattern of the top two panels is repeated in metallic and iridescent paints as the interior pattern in the lower two, set on a feathered monochrome background. The red-to-yellow interior pattern of the top panels, matched with the black-and-white lower-panel background, gives a distinct “autumn leaves” tone to the piece.

“The Island Continent”, here shown divorced from any north-south orientation and any “standard” mapwork, becomes an intriguing abstract form.

Heartland (Spirit Of America)

Heartland (Spirit Of America)

Heartland USA art map painting jfwoa

This is a two-panel piece highlighting the intriguing shape of the U.S.A.’s landlocked states (touching neither coast and neither border), with “the rust belt” symbolically reddish.
The organic shapes vibrantly coloring both the interior and exterior of the “state block” is countered by the shadowy iridescent lattice of rigid strictly horizontal and vertical lines in the interior, only visible when illuminated from certain angles (see “Alternate Views” gallery), symbolic of the varied land area’s political cohesion. The color fades of each panel are inverted and reversed, while the texturing is nearly mirrored and nearly balanced – Commonality is found in the Great Plains / Mississippi Basin area.

The View From The Bivy

The View From The Bivy

mountain expedition sunrise art painting jfwoa

The view past an oddly illuminated rock outcropping through a Wyoming-esque valley and meadow to almost silhouetted, very distant, very craggy mountain peaks, on a cloudy but crystal-clear, harsh yet benign late-autumn morning. (This is one of my personal favorites.)
