Keeping things loose in the new year with some works on paper. Acrylic and spray paint on 300 gsm Arches, 22" x 30"
I started this weird painting sometime around 5 months ago, mostly out of the desire to paint that foot but without giving much (any) thought to how I would contextualize it. Inevitably it came to a point where I got stuck, not knowing where to go with it. It was too uncomfortable to fit together with the other pieces I was making, yet there was still something interesting about it, enough that I hesitated to banish the thing to the pit of lost souls where so many of my other works have found themselves infinitely trapped. A few days ago I picked it back up and started incorporating some of the techniques I've recently been playing with, and now I like it again. Still a
One of my favorite paintings from this year, Mesh . Acrylic and spray paint on canvas, 16" x 20" , 2016 . I punched a hole in this piece by accident but was able to save it; I think that accident wound up improving the composition.

I've been working on pushing my pieces into further abstraction. Interrupting the composition with negative shapes, pushing and pulling until the thing starts to make sense. This one is almost there. 🍰
