I am in a relationship with PAINT… and how it makes me feel! I’m very sensitive to color and emotionally driven to my choices.
This painting is 24″x36″, “Untitled”, Acrylic on canvas. I think of it as, a classical floral arrangement, in a de-constucted modernist pose. I build structure by inventing and originating forms as containers for color.
I love suggestion and unmeasured standards, as opposed to precision, in harnessing gravity and significance to the act of painting. I choose to disrupt the established and bring imperfect beauty to the essence of the unseen.
To challenge the flat-line of monotony, and the blank stare of the ordinary, means being open to, and willing to, paint over areas I am convinced look ‘right’. I must relinquish the ownership of my actions to make way for new strokes that change the painting from one aspect to another, and another… this ongoing internal dialogue keeps the changes flying until I reach a summit: I’m looking for harmonious discord.
