Painting: Oil, Plastic, Steel on Plastic, Steel.
The technical focus of my current practice revolves around verre églomisé, or reverse glass painting. The interest in the process arose from a desire to release painting from its traditional two-dimensional limitations; due to the plinths, many of my works can be experienced in the round, both back and front surfaces accessible simultaneously. Additionally, the empty areas of the composition become four-dimensional, in that the peripheral activity in the room is absorbed into the painting and becomes part of the painting's history.
One of the primary culprits contributing to painting's dimension-specificity has historically been the horizon line. Many artists combatted its tyranny with abstraction, but the transparency of my work allows for hyperrealism while offering a shifting horizon line. The subject of the work moves as the viewer moves, and once again, the mirror-image on the reverse presents a figure that is always looking in the distance.
