Vignettes: constructed, deconstructed
Ideas aren’t linear, composed of tidy beginnings, middles and ends. They tend to accompany us through life, resurfacing from time to time, sometimes providentially, at moments our rational brains would be incapable of choosing more effectively.
As an artist, the ideas I think of as “old,” often accompany me physically, in addition to emotionally. I’m reminded of them daily when my eyes wander to a shelf in my studio, or to the room where I store paintings from years past.
As such, each of these paintings reflects on one of my “clocks,” interpreting its message, evolving it, sometimes even contradicting it, with remnants of old ideas and shards of new ones. Above all else, the goal of each new painting is to continue the conversation that the corresponding “clock” piece started.
