Paintings by Ross Van Dusen

"I decided that within squares there is a lot of softness."Painting by Ross Van Dusen

If you look within the canvas of Ross Van Dusen's paintings, between the geometric lines of triangles, circles, squares, arcs, and pies, you'll find faces formed as a combination of those shapes. Hard-angled figures evolve into symmetrical, soft-lined portraits.

Painting in layers that consist almost entirely of reds, yellows, and blues, Van Dusen uses an underpainting color that is complementary to the final finish. Since he uses a coat that makes the layers transparent, colors dance and become rich in their stark primary exchange.
