Originally a classically trained painter and sculptor who employed traditional academic techniques with an emphasis on academic realism and naturalism, I now work predominantly on abstract works in a variety of mediums. My current proposal for Artprize is an abstract multi-panel painting made up of six 3' x 3' panels. They are carefully created with black oil-based paint upon a white gesso primer. They are unplanned, and I try as best I can to allow for the ideas and mark makings to happen as naturally as possible. At each given moment I am not entirely sure what the final work will look like or even how the mark I am currently making will ultimately affect my ever changing idea of how to proceed. The paintings tend to grow, so to speak, slowly but surely, until they are finally 'finished.'
