Painting: Paper, Paint, Acrylic, Pencil on Wood.
Combining collage, pencil and paint to give this piece texture and playful complexity.
My paintings are a combination of all the visual elements I love the most. Beautiful colors, interesting lines, shapes, patterns and marks as well as rich textures.
I begin my paintings by building up layers, using paper, acrylic paints and various pencils. I play hide-and-seek with many of my marks and colors, bringing them out, and covering them up, keeping the work random and unexpected. I scrape, sand, paint, draw and paste until I begin to see an interesting, or beautiful composition taking shape. My intent is a somewhat distressed looking patina, or texture. I love the look of age and wear. It gives me a comforting sense of history and imperfection.
It is usually at this stage that the title, or name comes to me. I then put on the finishing touches with a few purposeful marks, paint strokes or collage elements to define the composition.
My Paintings are signed and titled on the back. The canvas and wood paneled paintings are wired and ready to hang. Each one comes with a certificate of authenticity.
