18.5 x 27, acrylic on panel.



We're all in our own bubble. Some of us connect, some of us do not.

Look like semiconductor arrangements all interlocking and yet each is different.

Love this!!
This is completely successful. It genuinely depicts in symbols the meaning you described in words.

This is so beautifully done! So successful in expressing our isolation, even as we conform to a common image.

This, somehow makes me think of Adolph Gottlieb's 20th century works.

I donít know but, on my perception, it looks as that each bubble owns his/her own language too. Just like we the artists, we express uniquely, yet art is universal to us. By the way, well done, I liked.

Thank you Jim and Rafael...

Jim, your comment about Gottlieb is very kind, he's one of my favorite artists and is a big influence.

I like it.
I agree with Jim on the hint of Adolph Gottlieb, but also I see some echoes of Keith Haring.

We're all in our own bubble. Some of us connect, some of us do not. So very true and some connect more peacefully than others.

Thank you Jon... I never looked at much Haring, (other than his Act-Up guy) but I did peruse a lot of Bradley Walker Tomlin, and his work also influences mine quite a bit from time to time.

While the Gottlieb influence is there, you most definitely have your own unique vibe and palette. I really like this piece, a lot.
It may sound strange, but when I viewed Compartments on my desktop screen instead of my phone, I thought it would make a stunning fabric. Something that could be the focal point of a very cool interior design project.

Thanks, Bilateral.... interesting about the fabric, as soon as I get financially able to do so, I may take this and a couple other designs and go to Spponflower and make some fabric with it. Takes a bit of doing to make a continuous design that interlocks, but I've done it a couple times before with good success.
