Taken Words series
Words form the architecture
I constantly search for phrases, sayings and quotes; verbal tidbits that strike me as funny or fascinating or true. These found or stolen words are painted over and over on a carefully prepared surface. The composition develops in the leftover shapes and intersections.
In the end, the words are nearly obscured but the story shimmers in the remaining spaces.
I start each painting by painting a quote, phrase or word on carefully prepared panel then paint and draw layers to create a composition. The words create the architecture.
This one is, “Extend an Olive Branch” 30x65”
