After a hiatus with painting, I have picked it back up and have been investing in some works since Spring of 2009. Not all of the investigations have been successful and have been trying to get the paintings to follow suite with the sculpture-a great challenge. The painting medium is so slippery and unpridictable compared to the fabrication processes involved with the sculpture materials.
If one cuts a piece of material at a right angle the result will be a right angled form; but if one pushes a paint stroke or chalk stick through another paint stroke or chalk mark-well, the outcome is murky. I am beginning to relinquish my control and assertions with the mediums and this has opened the work up to an intuitive and quixotic path.
When working in an abstract vein the definitions bring some words and clarity to an utterly speechless practice.
