Artist featured in a collection
What has attracted me to tar and feather my paintings is the significance of meaning that the material suggests; it allows me to ask the question: "what kind of treatment can painting endure"? Suspending the canvas horizontally is one formal way to investigate this idea and is the first in a series of seven versions each using a structural method to hold a tarred and feathered painting up to scrutiny. The painting becomes a type of offering; In a certain sense, I am offering a painting up for contemplation to ask about its identity: How should it be treated? What defines it as a language? How is meaning created and deciphered? The raw and aggressive treatment towards the artwork is in contrast with the formal properties of the piece because as a painting, it maintains an aesthetic appeal. This duality intrigues me because "Painting" as a language, contains a multitude of meanings. What is most important to me is using certain materials and creating particular structures that allow for a painting's identity and social function to be questioned; not to limit its capacity but to augment its possibilities.
