This Dan Strothers Fine Art Creation is a triptych acquired by a collector/resident of the Ritz Carlton in Sarasota, Florida. It is one of two art works from Dan Strothers that hangs in this residence which is full of contemporary original art. This abstraction is entitled “Essence” and is built in highly figured maple, birdseye maple and mappa burl wood which are intensely pigmented with bright colors and earth tones before being glued down on a wooden canvas in a contemporary organic, abstract collage.
While “Essence” is a triptych, the collector wanted the artwork to appear as one, so the Florida artist built a framework to join the individual pieces together. The result was a 84″ x 60″ abstract that hangs in his dining room.
