Atlas returns to the theme of global warming and waste which JMe is committed to bringing to the viewer’s attention. The canvas operates as a quasi-map of the world with discarded studio materials composed in a wide band of floating debris. The canvas is intuitivly broken into various layers of undulating blue and green with infrequent red-orange underlays spread throughout. The geometric forms appear to be architectural floor plans and possibly fragments of single-family dwellings. This is a possible allusion to how the effects of environmental catastrophe touches everyone, even people and families nestled within the comfortable confines of their single-family homes. However, ATLAS as simply an abstract painting stripped of content is a powerful composition with bold color choices, nuanced details and intuitive energy.
