Title: Constructed Realities
Medium: Acrylic on 1″ deep gallery-wrapped canvas, with painted sides
Dimensions: 24″ x 36″

“Constructed Realities” is a striking geometric abstract painting that invites viewers to explore the nuanced interplay between social constructs and constructionism. The canvas, measuring 24 inches by 36 inches, is carefully divided by a flowing sine wave that runs lengthwise, creating a dynamic separation between two contrasting worlds.

On the left side of the sine wave, the composition features a serene palette of pale creams and soft whites. Rectangles of varying sizes interlock and overlap, each one meticulously shaded to create a sense of depth and dimension. The subtle play of light and shadow gives the impression that these forms are gently floating in a tranquil, elevated space.

In stark contrast, the right side of the sine wave bursts with bold reds and vibrant blues. Here, the rectangles are equally varied in size but project a more intense energy. The shadows they cast are sharper, enhancing the illusion of depth and creating a sense of structural complexity. This side of the painting seems to rise, suggesting a higher plane of existence or thought.

The sine wave itself is more than a mere divider; it casts a shadow onto the pale side of the canvas, reinforcing the notion that this side is lower in elevation compared to the colorful half. This subtle detail adds to the three-dimensional illusion, emphasizing the divide between the two realms.

“Constructed Realities” challenges viewers to reflect on the nature of societal structures and the subjective boundaries that define our perceptions. The juxtaposition of calm neutrality with vibrant intensity symbolizes the dichotomy between accepted norms and the dynamic forces that shape and redefine them. This artwork is a profound visual commentary on the fluidity of social constructs, urging us to consider how these constructs are built, perceived, and transformed over time.
