Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

From the "Platinum Sea" series: a new body of work depicting fragments of the surface of the ocean rendered in an extremely limited palette composed almost entirely of indigo, red and white. The imagery comes from my own digital photographs through which I am able to capture a level of detail or moment in time that is not accessible through casual observation. My focus is explicitly on the physical aspects of the water, hence the neutral color. To this end, I am exploring the expressive capacity of a palette that, despite its austerity, yields a surprisingly complex and subtle tonal range. In these works as in my earlier paintings, I use the camera and digital editing to explore the physical world inch by inch, so to speak, identifying and isolating "events" or phrases within the larger context that are at once intimate and universal, timeless and ephemeral.
