“Land Structures”
Don Wass – Artist Statement
 
When I was a young artist I was given a book about Frank Lloyd Wright’s houses. I especially liked the photos of the falling water house.  Architectural, and geometric shapes have influenced my work ever since.  With hard edges against a background of loose form and color, and paint that fluctuates between ragged-edged and raw, to hard-edged and refined, my work is primarily an exploration of how color, texture, and composition work together in a translucent space, and how the architectural or geometric elements hold the compositions together. 
 
The “Land Structures” paintings -- acrylic on Arches watercolor paper,  combine overlapping forms of hard and soft edges, but with a shallower depth of field and more transparent layers of color than in earlier works.
