Abstract painting, primarily white with a large squarish area of dark green in the top left quadrant. Loose brushwork varies from wide, full strokes to the short, rapid strokes at the compositions center. Pigment application ranges from a very thin wash to heavy impasto.
Joan Mitchell
In "White Territory," the title of the work along with its gestural brushwork strongly evoke the memory or sensation of a landscape. It is a reflection upon personal associations and inner domains that the artist calls "internal weather."
