Intersecting painting and sculpture.
Repurposing a canvas from 2001, latex paint from the loft, textural character added with cardboard from packages received at the loft, package labels, painters tape, and markers; this painting examines the use of representational materials to create purposefully personal art.

Carefree plays on words. Carefree can mean relaxed, cheerful, lighthearted, untroubled, playful; but it can also mean care free, that is, absence of care. The mailing tube separates the heavier denser painting on the right from the lighter, whimsical left-hand side. And for the artist, the tube also symbolizes care.

Static and Dynamic Deconstructed and Reconstructed
Creation, destruction, reconstruction. Frame within a frame. Letting in more light. Construction. Shadows. Finding a new path into the picture. The original painting was too tight, constricted. Deconstruction felt lighter, freer, more fun. The pieces of painted canvas are substantive to the touch. Reconstruction allowed for more openings into the work in a less temporal form than the deconstructed piece.

Peering Into the Future
Beginning from a two dimensional flat surface painting (36x48). Freed from the frame. Painting intersects with sculpture. Three dimensional.

Painting on Frame on Frame
Context and framing. Using additional frames to form a context. Shadows changing with the light add another dimension to the piece.
