Ricci Albenda


The black rectangles are an initial layout for a composition of greenish paintings—a garden of varying foliage hues and some names of plants that I love. The other paintings are just randomly hung on top in order to work on them. It's unplanned, but I think the juxtaposition really shows how scale and composition can create spatial perspective (and negate it, á la the two tiny little microscopes paintings.) It's totally different from the optical perspective of my sculpture, a tiny example of which drops in from the top of the frame.
