2013, Acrylic and oil on canvas, 54"w x 39"h
My work examines the dimensionality of painting. The spectrum in which a painting begins as a two-dimensional image and reaches a state of “object-hood” in the third dimension is explored through the simultaneous exchange of visual information between my initial designs and the painted canvases. I begin by constructing hard-angled blocks out of wood with certain planes painted in color. These simultaneously inform the subject matter of my paintings and vice versa; selective colors and shadows within my paintings are carried over to the wooden blocks. Together they create references to manufactured landscapes, separate from reality yet still existing within a physical space.
