Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

Inside-out paintings create an alternative way to view a two-dimensional oil painting. The work is made from a process developed by the artist 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. The result of this novel 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 with turpentine- things that happen within the painting procedure which are usually covered up, are all visible to assess. The work then creates a dialog about the anatomy of abstract painting, by literally providing a new perspective.
