Artist Journal #33

8/18/17 Imagine using translucent fabric as a means for layering and partially obscuring previous marks, instead of paint. What if I’ve been approaching the entire fabric series with a close-mindedness that is hyper focused on the previous success of my Deceptive Clarity series? I want to continue masking and playing with space, but it doesn’t… Continue reading Artist Journal #33

Studio Update: Tying Together

Getting fired up in the studio! This fabric series is really transforming and I’m starting to make some visual and visceral connections between my current experiments and both finished an unfinished projects from the past. I’ve been obsessed with voids and holes, with shapes both pushing forward and receding back into space. Let me begin… Continue reading Studio Update: Tying Together

Artist Journal #30

2/2/17 It came to me, as I lay staring at the new drawings I’ve been working on (inspired by Motherwell and Kline). I realized the reason my drawings and paintings are so different is because on small scale, my strokes are broad and fill most of the space on the page. When I paint on… Continue reading Artist Journal #30

Artist Journal #29

1/30/17 I figured out what it is, what’s been stopping me. I’ve forgotten what I loved the most about artists: they have fascinating stories. They have personalities and quirks. The image of a cigarette smoking, middle-aged man painting during an interview… Modern Abstract Expressionists were romantics, ridden with passion and insanity, character and unpredictability. They… Continue reading Artist Journal #29

Artist Journal #28

12/3/15 The city still has its magic for me, even though its reality has rubbed me down to a raw stump. The truth is there is just as much beauty as there is pain. With so many possibilities, one can expect no less. For as many satisfied and successful people there are even more somber… Continue reading Artist Journal #28

Back from the Salton Sea

I just returned from an artist trip out to the Salton Sea and Slab City in the high desert of California. It was the 10th Annual Morton Salt Children’s Religious Revival; an intimate group of artists that explore the abandoned buildings and mysterious sights to see out in the bleached desert. On the trip, I… Continue reading Back from the Salton Sea

New Series – Out of the Mist

Finished a series of small paintings on paper for a new series in the works entitled “Out of the Mist”. I plan to create a larger set in this series, playing with the same layers of black on white and white on black with a touch of color. Inspired by the famous abstract expressionists Motherwell… Continue reading New Series – Out of the Mist
