"Salmon Roll", oil on canvas, 12" x 36"
A traditional diptych is defined as two panels that are linked by a functional hinge, to form an almost book like structure. Traditionally made of ivory or other precious material, these diptychs were often held in the highest regard, due to their rare material (obviously) and the skill it required to create such masterpieces.
Later on, the link between the diptych became more of a metaphorical presence, and often panels were placed next to each other, due to either their similarities or conversation that sparked between the separate panels.
Typically I shy away from diptychs, mostly because the ones I see today are often too open ended, or simply look like the artist should have just used one larger canvas instead of trying to make it interesting with two. However, the piece above and the piece from yesterday's post makes a perfect diptych in my eyes, for they form what we often see placed before us on a plate, but on canvas. The gorgeous rows of sushi I always admired, so I figured why not abstract and enlarge them to truly make a work of art? Just an idea, of course. What do you think?
