Art Description

Painting: Acrylic and Gesso on Canvas.

I approach these works, “The Elements Series,” as a scientist attempting to prove a hypothesis. I experiment with shapes to form geometrical configurations that are skillfully arranged in positions to simulate a situation. As an example, the image could take on a feeling of a type of machine under built up static pressure. I find these arrangements by layering shapes and pulling away parts to find the tension and balance in the positive and negative spaces. I then use a method I describe as “painting deconstructed.” The process starts with leaving the raw canvas bare in parts and adding gesso only in other parts. I then add the paint in limited formations so that all the working parts of the painting can be seen, "the bones, the muscle, and the skin”. The end result is a bold composition with a complex architecture mixed with a simplistic elegance.
