for me is an evolution of experience and ideas. I try to work in small
series that have, more often than not, very little to do with the previous.
The next series is always like a nonlinear evolution. I like to think
of some element in a past series spiraling my thoughts into something
new and different.
only personal restriction is that I work with six colors, I only buy the
three primary colors and try to create the secondary colors by layering
thin films of transparent paint.
These works are a large departure from my normal way of working. Instead
of physically painting I am tracing digital photographs using a drawing
program. Followed by the application of color based in my before mentioned
preferences. These all looked very attractive but looked too much like
The solution to making something different stemmed from traveling on trains
and planes. The text or font faces seen partially cropped on a fellow
passenger's newspaper made interesting shapes. I returned to the drawing
program and began to chop apart various fonts faces to create a layer;
to cover or hide the tracings. Windows or portholes were formed that curiously
changed the viewers perspective and depth of field.
