description from direct communication with the artist:
“A series of Gaia works were created for El Art: International Exhibition of Electronic Art, Retretti Art Center, Finland (May-September, 1991). This work was one of several created in 1990 that were part of the “family” of Gaia’s created in anticipation of that show. This work is also very similar to the center pieces on the 3 triptychs dating from the same period.
This series should be hung so that it may be seen from a distance as well as close up. Most of Roman’s work grew from “painterly” traditions and the clustered pen strokes were also intended to create softly modulated fields of color.”
