I have been constructing three-dimensional objects in order to paint on and into them
throughout my career as an artist.
All things that illuminate, especially lamps, are of great interest to me.
The ‘Wall Dress’ series are 3-dimensional paintings that utilize internal light sources.
The light reveals, reflects and highlights the paint drips, strokes, depth, and the construction methodology as well as adding to the mystery of the object. The incidental shadows cast on the wall, floor and ceiling are crucial and integral to the paintings.
