New Tagline

The Colorist
New School Use of Color
Casey Klahn

Your responses are requested. I am re-tooling and re-working my website, and this collage resulted in an effort to post a descriptive image of my blog. The word "Artspeak" in the old tag line was a stumbler for many - especially because I use a lot of artspeak, myself!

Anyway, the goal has been to communicate my art philosophy in process. The less "wordy', the better, I feel. What are your critiques of the collage, and of the tag line: "New School Use of Color"

I really like it, is says a lot without words :) but I am not sure about the grey box with the yellow in it. I am going to have to stare at it a bit more. Something about it bothers me and I can't put my finger on it.

Thanks for looking in, Corrine.
I meant the Yellow Gesture abstract as a base color work against a fairly popped-out background detail from another abstract work.
I do agree it sort of sits there with some kind of contextual problem, though...
Now that I have the graphic in hand, I can mess with different images in there.
Good crit.

One thing I do like in this image is the white borders that stand out against the background.
Still looking for another one like that...
