The series continues…

It’s been a lot of fun creating the LF body of paintings. This work flow has been capturing my imagination more so than the various series of the past.  Although they are all enjoyed and aesthetically awkward by design, sometimes one in particular will seem like a personal breakthrough. I usually put that one up on the wall and think “I’d never sell this one.” LOL.  If only that were an actual problem…one that I hope to have some day.  As long as I keep gaining purchase on this journey of material expression, it should be appropriate to swap out the “favorite” spot on a regular basis. 

I’d also like to note that the mention of  “awkward by design” refers to my personal relationship to studio work and a continued quest to make art which embraces an intuitive guidance methodology.  Process art in modern times often lacks the restraint of aesthetic governance, while a full throttle mode of expression impales the viewer with an attempt which falls short of a quality experience.

My point in all of this is that I truly believe we all have the ability to tap into the same mother load of creative goodness. Perhaps the way to get there is to be a superior technician like the Dutch Masters, or maybe it lies in the air as the paint was pulled by gravity before it landed on Pollock’s canvas. Who really knows. I don’t have it figured out at all, but while locked in the trance of process I can’t think of anything else than what is happening in that moment. A continual state of that dynamic is where it’s at as far as I’m concerned.


Getting Small(er)

Recent efforts in painting have been scaled back in size in order to try and stretch the dollar while continuing to produce as many works as possible.

As you can see the tabbed corners have come back in this series, while I’ve been trying to allow for the process of discovery to flourish. This series of “Lil’ Flappers” are less than 24” in dimension which makes them accessible to most wall spaces and interiors. The title of the series takes note of the flappers of the early 1900’s who were daring in their attire and carefree on the dance floor.
