I have been asked, with some frequency, about pieces that predominantly use one color. Usually this is some variation of the question "Why paint a canvas one solid color?" Of course it usually isn't solid, lie Goode's piece here. This piece, Ocean Blue #36, indeed, evokes the ocean, from above, from deep within. It isn't just a single color but never ending variations. These differences and the texture make this piece.
Rose Garcia's A Ghost Is Born is very different (obviously) from Ocean Blue #36. It is figurative, and while I make no claim whatever to understand how the imagery relates to the name, it is phantasmagorical and mythic. You could make up your own meaning, your own explanation and it might work as well as the intended one--because there are a variety of potential stories in the piece.
