Artist's Statement

In these new paintings titled; Frame & Canvas, I begin by breaking down nature to it’s purest form and rebuilding by means of adding, taking away and adding again until a finished piece is revealed. This approach is something of a reverse for me. The previously imagined narrative is gone. Instead, I begin with the unknown and work my way towards the edge of the known.

While each these canvases share a relationship to surface, color, scale, and boundaries, they remain intimate and separate of one another, choosing instead to cast off any formal sense of geometry, figure or irony. One defining similarity of these paintings is the ghosting of the stretcher, which is consistently present through the canvas. Here the foundation is not only revealed, but embraced as an equal component to the work.
