16 to the Power of 2 -- 16 Squared

One size fits all. I set myself a challenge one day to take one 16"x16" size and create 20 individually unique abstract "landscapes".

STATEMENT

I look for unexpected harmonies between color and texture combining surfaces with a history with visual embellishments. Collage elements such as typography, handwriting, images and papers as well as three dimentional found objects, bring to life the surfaces of my canvases. These elements interest me because of the stories they quietly reveal. Part of the focus of this series is the layering of the landscape dialogue.

Each piece’s progress is driven and adapted according to the organic growth of the painting. Advance planning rarely controls my final outcome. Acrylic paint and mediums are merely the launch pad from which my work develops, not wishing to set any strict limits. In addition to collaging found objects I often stitch through the canvas with wire or threads of other compositions. I must, in every sence, embrace the randomness of mixed media and experiment with materials.
