Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Ink, Graphite on Paper.

Series 22 #5
Ritual
18 x 24 in
2017
Ink, Acrylic, Graphite, Scratching

All works in Series 22 incorporate a mix of high quality traditional media, including sumi ink, pigment-based india inks, acrylic and watercolor paints, and graphite on 300 gsm Rives BFK printmaking paper that is 100% cotton and acid-free. Each work is signed on the front with my initials, and on the back with my initials, last name, date completed, and the series number.

-------

My works represent a constant outpouring of singular impressions: clearly isolated images that capture flashes of emotion, changes in perception, or moments of recognition. I give fleeting thoughts as much consideration as monumental ideas: nothing is more important than anything else and every small thing has its place.

My process is modeled after the methods of improvisational theater. I make a first mark, then ask myself, “if this is true, what else is true?” I repeat this process with the addition of each new element, using personal experience to shape the final image.

Each image represents an isolated narrative, yet all the images together tell a larger story. My accountability for the truth and permanence of this story is an important part of my identity as an artist. This is why I make all my works in sequential series, and never destroy or hide any of them.

-------

This work ships flat. The work is placed between sheets of acid-free glassine on a piece of foam board, put in a resealable polypropylene sleeve, wrapped with bubble wrap, nested between two pieces of foam board and/or corrugated cardboard shipping inserts, and placed in a cardboard box.
