Damn Memory (2018)
acrylic on canvas
30 x 24 in.
While revisiting drawings I had collected in sketchbooks for several years, I discovered a new vocabulary of shape, line and color that began to inform my work. A curved shape meets a rectilinear shape meets a solid line as an unexpected energy is released and I become enthralled by the relationships that appear on the surface hinting at a deeper truth underneath.
This series of shape, line and color is developed thru a process of arranging and rearranging the elements until a balance is achieved that both answers an underlying question and poses new queries of relationship and “what if” possibilities. The process is both mystical and deliberate and has become meditative in its execution. The challenge of discovery in all that is possible within these minimalist parameters keeps me engaged and searching.
