A portfolio of larger works that are approximately 24” square or larger.
Larger paintings are conceived and executed over time requiring multiple painting sessions. This approach enables the application of successive layers of opaque and semi-transparent color to capture effects of light and textures. They are a distillation of many observations and color and compositional explorations that have come to represent my experience and worthy of conversation.
Larger works not only require more paint, but paint is applied with bigger brushes and other tools resulting in different kinds of marks and different textures. Paintings of this scale are more gestural, painting from your shoulder and moving your arm to sweep strokes across the canvas.
Work is typically painted on coarse grade Belgian linen. The rough surface of the canvas quickly creates visual textures and depth as the layers of paint are applied.
