The current paintings follow seven years of working predominantly in ink and other mediums on paper. I had been working in oil paint and was stuck by how dramatically materials affect ones working process. Smaller works on paper allowed more territory to be covered in less time. Granted, more works were discarded, but the viscosity and nature of the medium certainly lent itself to a more prolific output.
“I have submitted paintings that were either executed concurrently with the ink works or re-worked paintings that have been impacted on by what was discovered during that time. A wordless dialogue between two very different mediums over what is now many years.”
