These latest works combine abstraction and illusion in a somewhat theatrical or surreal event. Working in a collage sensibility, images coalesce and collapse almost simultaneously, skirting the edge of illusion and abstraction. Fragments of paintings, drawings both hand and digital, play a big role in the crafting of space in these works. Each painting attempts to hold on to a moment led by the subconscious and bordering on slipping away.
These paintings were experiments on a small scale experimenting with ideas that play out in the larger paintings in later series. These were all done between 2016 and 2017.
