Art Description

Painting: Oil, Acrylic, Fabric and Enamel on Canvas, Soft (Yarn, Cotton, Fabric) and Wood.

*This painting is framed in an artist made Redwood Frame*

Five years ago necessity was truly the mother of invention in my studio, then based in Arizona. With a desire to move beyond figurative work into large-scale abstractions — and a wallet that didn’t allow for those expansions, I began sewing canvases from drop cloth, found pieces of transparent silk brocades and burlap sacks (once filled with alfalfa or coffee), which I further embellished with bolts of white and indigo denim that I found in Tempe fabric stores. I had this new realization that I was piecing myself together.

From there I create a second composition on top of my stitched canvas with a foundation for bold marks of color that are further adulterated with tube squeezes of black oil or acrylic. Referencing everything from the emotional abstractions of Willem De Kooning to the primitivist scrawls of Jean Michel Basquiat to the expressionistic flurries of Arshile Gorky, my “inorganic forms” are constantly exploring new depths of texture and symbolism.
