Dominant Spheres is a large, quadriptych acrylic painting, executed through a rapid process of stenciling and staining. The multiple, overlapping circular forms were created by taping large, blank circles of gessoed paper to the four prepared paper panels. The temporarily fastened spherical forms functioned as stencils while the entire quadriptych was stained with thinned acrylic and rags. This layered staining process simultaneously created both the Dominant Spheres painting and the Dying Spheres pieces. More on Dominant Spheres and related images can be seen here.
