Mavis Pusey Abstract Painting

"My work consists of geometrical forms in a variety of geometrical configurations. These forms are based on buildings around the Manhattan area. I am insprired by the energy and the beat of the construction and demolition of these buildings -- the tempo and movement mold into a synthesis and, for me, become another aesthetic of abstraction."
