I spent the first 6 months of the lock-down strictly working from home making smaller works on paper. This was a major change from my routine studio practice and like many, I was forced to work smaller.
Until March 2020, I had been working strictly on burlap for the prior 2 years, enthusiastically embracing its textured surface. Transitioning to a flat, toothless paper created new limitations that took time to workshop. While I had worked through similar ideas on paper in the past, this time seemed deserving of a new approach.
I made over 50 works on paper over the next 2 weeks, continuing to explore the possibilities of how to create direct imagery through basic applications of paint. What began with an impulse usually ended somewhere in the same territory leaving remnants of its process behind. These pieces were about grounding myself, if at least only momentarily through the act of painting. I intended them to be accessible while simultaneously offering a minor glimpse into my experiences during this strange moment of shared history.
Paintings from this suite are still available, ranging in size from 10"×8" to 12"×9". They are ready to ship world wide with affordable archival frame options available.
