My work emphasizes daily, sustained aesthetic experience, towards developing more and more visual language to expand the boundaries of painting’s meaning as a vessel / absence / that which could not possibly contain beauty and sympathetic experience.
Here are some notes.
Baseball players - immigrant; position; holding a shape. Having a detectable accent. Participation; sticking out or not. Non-narrative. baseball, earlier and earlier and earlier...
Beauty and the Beast - 1991 Disney movie; childhood piano lessons. Practicing piano = repetition and discipline; creating infinite versions and never the original.
Beast - handsomeness
Post its - Notation, building concepts, deferring. Distraction. A cheap office supply giving a predetermined color in daily work life. Having any job. Disposability. The bleed.
Drawing/sketching - Practice, unfinished. Labor of painting meted out over time. Work time and biographical time can be seen by the viewer when they read the work.
Grid / arrangements in lines and grids - Alphabet; Calendar. Animation.
Umbrellas - Solitude.
Mirrors, reflections, immateriality meeting the paint body.
