Call for Entries Accepted Artists
Menifee, California, USA
Abstraction reminds me not to take the commonplace for granted. As I go through my day I see little fragments of the world, tattered, walked on, worn, and faded. A couple of years ago while in Berlin on a walk. I found an image created from remnants of posters. There were layers of posters torn and weathered on a wall forming a beautiful collage. Anything can trigger an idea, and with abstraction the possibilities are limitless.
lends itself completely to invention. Each painting is an experiment. I discover what to do next as the painting progresses. I test the idea that a simple process, minimal planning, and intuition facilitate artistic expression. My studio is a place for evaluating ideas, materials, and techniques ? an art laboratory.
My paintings are on canvas or wood panels. The perimeter of a wood panel may have a unique shape, not the usual rectangle. Using acrylic paints, I create lines and shapes that suggest fragments of objects or spaces. Some of my paintings have remnants of fabric like a piece of shirt (from a friend) attached. Words and numbers may be found in some of my work. These symbols have both personal and obscure meanings, like my age in days. My paintings do not come directly from anything external but are invented from internalized ideas and experiences. These internalizedideas and experiences are where the idea for the ?subterranean? series and titles come from.
