These are both a continuation of the works I’ve focused on over the last several years, and a fusion of work I had begun in my late 20’s. Reaching back in time to older work is something I felt would happen when I had begun this work so many years ago. Every so often, the artwork revisits an old path, stemming from a previous impulse. This bridging of old and new characteristics in my art and history makes connections that are both satisfying and revelatory. These paintings are about paint, objecthood, and, although these are not sculpture, their relief aspects take that direction. Where this work ends is still a mystery to me, and finding myself in this uncertain territory is most invigorating.
