As the title "Under Construction" suggests, this project involves the construction of scenes while simultaneously being in a state of evolution. In these paintings I continue to explore the concepts of textural contrast, juxtaposition, connectivity, and digital fragmentation, all the while stretching the parameters of cohesiveness even further by experimenting with new media, but the process I employ varies from previous paintings in that I make more of a deliberate attempt to "build" rather than paint the compositional elements. By this I mean that there are more architectural references, more masking off and layering the surfaces, and, in general, more constructing. In the process I transcend from painter to craftsman/ interior decorator, and in some cases this involves the stripping away of old surfaces and the application of new ones. Less ethereal than the rainbow paintings, these "constructions" veer toward solidity and rootedness and rein in the stream of consciousness thinking I used in the past that lent itself more to free-flowing imagery. Nevertheless, spontaneity still plays a part in the choice of content, but with a heavier emphasis on redaction, the result being that the end product is a blend of spontaneity and structure. Thematically, I explore the ideas of digital-age bombardment, the transcending of daily tedium, and the importance of making connections through a diverse array of experiences.
