Space of Settlement

I paint directly onto the canvas:  I don’t sketch first. I like to build structure with color.

"Untitled"
“Untitled”  Acrylic on Canvas  22″x28″

I relinquish notions of absolute truth while intentionally working to disrupt the established.  It is through this process, that an adjustment takes place, culminating in an agreement composing differences.

My painting then becomes the act, or process, of settling an inner argument, or disagreement, with my notion of reality as it has been routinely accepted by me. A flux occurs, creating a progressive version of ‘reality’, and a region is newly settled within the confines of the canvas.

A new form of communication and environment crystallizes within an original form of perception and pleasure.

    1. It’s a pleasure to hear from you. I noticed your Acrylic Black painting and loved the pulses of color in it. I also admired your header with the dolls… objects I always love to view and use in my work. Take care… 🙂
