Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.

The work is made from a method I developed that allows the underside of the paint layer to be shown as the outward surface. The viewable surface is identical to peeling the entire paint layer off, and then flipping it over. This approach opens up a way to expose the bones of the process of painting itself- Mistakes and do-overs, erasures and repaints, scratching away the paint, smudging it off, things that happen within the painting procedure which are usually covered up, are all visible to assess. As well as showing the history involved in the making of each composition, it also creates a dialog about the anatomy of abstract painting, by literally providing a new perspective.

Making these paintings inspires me every time because of their honesty- thoroughly recording every detail within the process of art making.
