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 mostly on burlap for the last 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.
Over the last 12 months I've made upwards of 50 scaled down pieces on paper, continuing to explore the possibilities of how to create direct imagery through basic applications of paint. What starts with an impulse usually ends somewhere in the same territory leaving remnants of its history behind. These pieces have been about grounding myself, if at least only momentarily through the act of painting. I want 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.
