I don’t have any real problems with the weather, however, this winter in New York (and elsewhere) was pretty unrelenting. With multiple weeks where the temperature never got above freezing, I found my mind starting to wander about a lot of things. Among them was my artwork. During the 12th or 13th day off due to snow, I thought the studio deserved one too. So I opened my mind to new approaches and ideas. It turned into an avalanche of new work produced over a period of 2 – 3 weeks. This new body of work, became more than 70 artworks on paper in that time and I realized that maybe this was a snow day I would remember for quite some time.
The work represents a shift in the final image of the artwork, but less so about the approach. The images as always are processed based with attention given to the act of constructing and deconstructing the image while pursuing the final image. I view this approach as the result of a process that is questioned, documented, changed and eventually a realization that the entire process is never finished. What is leftover are markers to observe and gauge the decision points of the process along the way.
These are a couple of the new works on paper, paintings are currently drying and will be posted soon. Check my web site for more images.
