Contemporary Painting and Collage
The Spaces Below Us, 50"x32", acrylic, graphite on canvas
I paint from an improvisational and guttural place. Inhabiting an attitude of allowing and not knowing, I activate the canvas with spontaneous marks. I respond with paint that alternately asserts and obliterates the space. I aspire to paint with the unfiltered expression and rawness of a child. This new work is featured in the Spring 2015 edition of Studio Visit magazine.
