Water’s Edge

Swimming pools and sunbathers are an archetypical California image. They evoke the carefree lifestyle, surburban dreams,  warm weather. These icons of the outdoor suburban landscape have been mainstays of artists including Slim Aarons, David Hockney, Ed Ruscha, Josep Moncada, and Eric Zener.

For this series, I have chosen an aerial view, where the picture plan is flattened. The pool surface recalls an abstract expressionist color field and the edges make a nod to Diebenkorn’s Ocean Park series.  They were created with a combination of photographs of real bathers and acrylic paint.

There are three ways to own a Water’s Edge artwork:

  • I chose four of the paintings and did high res scans of them in order to create fine art prints in various sizes, starting as low as $100. Check out the selection here.

  • I am offering a signed, limited edition series of prints 39”w x 26”h via my galleries. The edition is limited to 25 and pricing started at $1,400. Contact me for availability and current pricing.

  • The original 12 paintings are framed and for sale via my galleries for pricing that started at $8,000. Contact me for availability and current pricing.
