Artist's Statement

Topless paintings.

Bottomless paintings.

(But no nudes.)

The long narrow “omnidirectional” panels are composed (and wired) to hang at any angle ---or upside-down, vertically, horizontally. For an “installation” quality, put some on the floor or overhead; curatorial creativity in hanging encouraged. “Mix and match” works.

The nonobjective surfaces ooze with slishy spatterwork melting into marbleized blobs ---often partly misted-over with aerosol obscurant. Stenciling, collage, objects, charring, lights, and occasional handfuls of coal dust might appear. Layers are built up, scraped, redone ---sometimes shot-at.

Some are purely compositional color-texture experiences; others become subtly (or blatantly) political or historical.
