detail image


These three paintings used the daily changes in mundane environments to investigate the process of painting. I engaged in a direct encounter with my subjects, and the temporal changes that took place in what I observed became integral to my process. Various states of the paintings remain visible in the final pieces, creating a palimpsestic record of my decision-making process. The questions I posed revolved around issues of color relationships, value structure, non-liner perspective, and pictorial space, and the way these formal elements can generate affect and imply narrative.
