Painting - Speaking, Slowly.
My work emphasizes daily, sustained
aesthetic experience, towards developing more and more visual language.
Here is a “key” for some of my themes:
Baseball players - Learning a language, and having a detectable accent.
Beauty and the Beast -
This is about creating versions and
interpretations (as with classical piano
repertoire). I played the music from the Disney movie when I was young. Piano Lessons; Repetition; Discipline.
Post its - Cheap office supply; a predetermined
color for daily work life. Notation (musical or otherwise), building concepts,
Drawing/sketching - Analog for
practice; the labor of painting meted out over time; Time.
Grid / arrangements in lines and grids - Alphabet; Calendar; Narrative.
Angels - Angels.
Umbrellas - Solitude.
