This work foregrounds painting as process and experience. In this series of paintings, the primary focus is on the layers, texture, movement, color, and their relationships. Paint is applied in a variety of ways, using brushes, rollers, sprays, and drips in a back-and-forth movement, building and removing layers to translate my sense of place and time. This body of work is created between my studio in the Berkshires, which is in a rural/forest setting and my Oakland studio, an urban environment. The work created in my Berkshire studio reflects the different seasons, looking out my studio window watching the play of light on snow or grass and the surrounding forest. My urban/warehouse studio produces subtle changes, colors become more muted, worn, with more texture, responding to the denser and busier environment.Click on an image below for more information.
