6 (After Rain) is part of a long series of paintings and monotypes
which are an evocation of both the multicultural and temporal layering
which exists in our contemporary experience and thought. They draw
from, and play on, Chinese calligraphy, the Japanese kimono shape
(as in this painting), reference to the horizontal scroll format
(in the monotypes), the color relationships of traditional Korean
dress, or hanbok, as well as references to the late 19th century
Fauve painters of France. Color relationships are primary in the
paintings, while gesture dominates the monotypes.
