About The Artwork

This was originally a 30"x40" canvas of a much larger stack that I cut and re-stretched on a smaller frame as an experiment to see how a new size and focal point could change the feel of a fairly simple composition. I cut the remainder into smaller pieces and stretched those over wood panels, and this collection became a story in itself. Colors are still bright in November, but mornings start to be increasingly gray, a bit darker each day, muted colors of leaves against clouds and weakening sunlight. Painted edges, wired on back to hang.

My colors are inspired by vintage materials, old crayons, textiles, toys. I used to paint in a more representative way, depicting the actual objects, the signs and buildings. Over the past few years, I started to abstract the idea of my own memories, being in a space like a roller rink or playroom; recalling patterns on juice glasses, board games, beach towels. I’d been stacking shapes in my work for some time before I made the connection to my longtime job as a firewood stacker. The way I fit the pieces together, balancing them, supporting against each other, or about to fall, but never quite. Then the shapes became a way to explore color combinations. I use acrylic paint, a lot of color mixing, layers, in person you might see the texture of the canvas or wood, shapes are smooth edged but a little messy. Vibrant and murky colors side by side. I love trying to get the look of layers of old paint on the side of a building or a piece of furniture. Where you can read the surfaces. You can see ridges of paint strokes, or you see the grain beneath, so the paintings become tactile like the sculptures. I realized that my most recent paintings represent an aspect of who I am and where I am. Both a more optimistic side of myself, as well as the wistful side of me that longs for something I can’t describe. When I painted vintage cars or phone booths, I was interested in the nostalgia one might feel for something they can’t quite remember themselves, but can appreciate the object (or image of it) that suggests a memory. I could find great pleasure in looking at such a thing. The process of painting deepened my experience of the subject, and sometimes brought me a story that a viewer would share. Moving to an abstract representation of these ideas was a natural progression in my work. I am finding my personal connection to what I make, linking a formal approach to an emotional, expressive one.
