My paintings are truly sculptural works. From the
very start I imagine painting the figure as if I were creating a sculpture.
I form the armature on canvas and then adds layers and layers
of a variety of materials to develop my rich three-dimensional surfaces.
My paintings are as much about the
process as the materials I work with. These are very tough
canvases as the paint has been layered, removed, marked, then
burnished and layered again to get the effect I am looking for.
I work it like a sculpture on a 2-dimensional plane. I am
fortunate to be able to use so many different combinations of
media to create such depth in the surface.
Aesthetically, these works are about line,
surface and movement. Some works are drawn and painted. Another was the result
of muscling paint onto a canvas to make it flow like water.
