As a process painter and collage maker, I try to come in close to the line between conscious and unconscious processes and to work gently alongside it. I stick with the physical experience of paint and paper application. I enjoy shifting among various moves, weighting – and waiting! I want in painting not to execute intention but to find and drop it as needed and as possible.
“Effects” became a collage when I needed to cover something on the canvas and find a pathway through the designs. It is made of acrylic on canvas with paper bearing laser-printed and photocopied/re-sized images. The paper is held in place by paint. “Effects” plays with being here and being gone. Putting things in order, getting hold of them, and sailing out.
This painting is currently on exhibit at Woodmere Art Museum's 71st Annual Juried Exhibition.
I am currently working on a series of which Effects is a part. The series title is "Catch Me If You Can."
