Recent experiments in Paint

These latest works combine abstraction and illusion in a somewhat theatrical or surreal event. Working in a collage sensibility, images coalesce and collapse almost simultaneously, skirting the edge of illusion and abstraction. Fragments of paintings, drawings both hand and digital, play a big role in the crafting of space in these works. Each painting attempts to hold on to a moment led by the subconscious and bordering on slipping away.

Study series

These paintings were experiments on a small scale of ideas I am working out in another series of larger scaled work.
These were all done between 2016 and 2017.

Recent prints

This series represents recent work in printmaking. They are primarily Artist proofs 1/1 as they are experiments from some recent artist editions. Specifically, three of these prints are chine colle experiments and all are some form of photopolymer etching.
