Doris Staffel, Lotus Throne
(Doris's) work has always been engaged in the question of absolutes, the enigma of alternatives, and the agony of silence. There has always been the need to find the balance between empirical perception and mystical awareness.
-Larry Day, friend and colleague
The basic geometry of this meditative and complex drawing is expressed through rectilinear shapes and visual balance, resulting in design, order, and clarity. A deep receding space is filled with columns and converging planes. Light and dark forms balance each other; a throne sits squarely in the middle, bisecting the page.
