- removing my mark is an impossible task, but i’m interested in challenging it and setting it up for failure - how much can it withstand?
- a painting of just punctuation
TIwAML, oil and gouache on canvas, 36” x 48”, 2014
Thoughts on the large in-progress painting:
I’m looking to create a very layered, complex space so that when I simplify there is a history apparent.
As I paint I start to think about Stalker, specifically the scene where the desired endpoint could be reached by walking an easy straight line, but the characters must take a winding, roundabout route. The man is standing there "staring" directly at you, but there’s still an impenetrable distance between him and viewer. You couldn’t go in a straight line to get to him, but he’s so close.
