This painting shows the influence of Mary Nell's brother, James Brooks, the New York School Abstract Expressionist. The spontaneous qualities of the oil-acrylic emulsion allow the masses of color to dissolve and float on top of one another. A dynamic tension is created, which leads the eye to rove around an amorphous composition.
Estate of Mary Nell Brooks
Texas Art from Private Collections, Kettle Art, Dallas, 2007
Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
