Dexter’s Choice, State #1 by Larry Zox
A unique example of a mixed media pochoir(French for stenciling), mastered by many artists because of the extraordinary lushness of colors arranged in geometrical shapes. Introduced in China many years ago, some says a thousand years became popular in France for commercial publishing circa 1800s.
This is an abstract figure that for some seems to depict a squatting woman with a very huge hat and embracing her son/daughter. Some could see only geometric shapes and lush colors. While these same persons relate the combination of colors and shapes to an importance; for the artist and those who bought the pictures for display and admiration on their wall.
Abstract tell us more of the artist’s state of emotion and state of mind but it could take a few days and a few moments to finish, then we could say taking from this point of view a work of art tell us a part of the artist’s life story.
