The assemblage paintings are composed with metaphorical objects from the visual vocabulary of Lucy + Jorge Orta —window frames, ladders, life rings, clouds, aluminium stretcher bars. These found objects are superimposed upon the abstract gesture of the 'derrame', to create lines and symmetries which structure and attempt to control the underlying chaos. They also open new horizons made possible by the use of window frames and life rings.
