Call for Artists Accepted Entries
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.
Abstraction 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, it is my 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 a shirt (from a friend) attached. Words and numbers may be found in some of my work. These symbols have both personal and obscure meanings such as my age in days. My paintings do not come directly from anything external but are invented from internalized ideas and experiences. These internalized ideas and experiences are where the idea for the subterranean series and title comes from.
