As you can see, colors in my abstract works are closely aligned with my representational paintings. But there is an important distinction. In the abstractions, I don’t envision how the finished painting will look. It’s all about trial and error.
Here, the proportions are in a consistent state of re-evaluation as layer over pigmented layer is scumbled on to the surface. Lines of graphite are drawn and then painted over. I obscure with paint; rubbing, removing and adding texture which ultimately leaves a trail of how the work is created.
I stop when I feel tension held in suspension and chunks of colored space breathe fluently.
