Gallery Wrap 19 x 20
Pareidolia definition – “The tendency to perceive a specific, often meaningful image in a random or ambiguous visual pattern.”
This is what happened to create this painting. I was randomly putting paint on the canvas when I saw what looked like two women with their backs to each other as if they were having an argument; thus “The Argument” was created.
Gallery Wrap 36 x 24
Acrylic, Gesso and Charcoal
When painted over, graphite mixes in and dirties up the color. This gives this piece a sense of depth and age, while also suggesting the presence of the city. Graphite is used to outline images and frame in areas in this collage. It is smudged around creating the same effect as in the paintings. It also obscures the literal fact that a collage item might just be a piece of shopping bag or a handwritten letter and unifies it with the composition.
Vase 1 (Outside the Box Series)
Framed 19 x 27
Vase 1 is one of a large series called “Out of the Box”, a play on the phrase “think outside the box”. One Christmas I was recycling all the boxes and wrappings in my messy garage. I happened to look with new eyes at the molded styrofoam and cardboard packaging that comes with appliances. An idea came to use them as large “stamps”. I painted them with acrylic paint and printed them on paper. The series includes numerous abstracts, a flock of flying birds and two vases.
