This small oil painting on panel is animated by a playful dialogue between object and gaze, an invitation to participate in the puzzle of shapes as they overlay, interlock or disjoin with each other. In these small works, this openness is concentrated, isolated to a small number of moments of tension between coloured shapes. Using a dry-brush over underlayer technique to create zones of colour vibration, LaRose ably positions planes as complexly inhabiting foreground and background.
