Boogie Woogie

Boogie Woogie

Boogie Woogie is an original piece. The generated images from this work remind me of a cityscape or the sides of a building. Somewhere in the back of my mind I see the series of paintings by Piet Mondrian called Broadway Boogie Woogie.

The work divides the picture plane into alternating transparent color and no color (white) stripes, across and down the image. The height or width of the stripe is based on an algorithm called 'fractions of the whole.' Where the stripes intersect the overlying transparent colors "add" to produce a third color. 

Small rectangles of similar shape are centered in each rectangular area created by the intersecting bands. They could be vehicles or windows. These small rectangles which are randomly colored and filled, outlined, or both add a unifying structure to the overall image.
