"Flowers Of The Pandemic"
To be overburdened by the paradigm of chaos and perfection would be detrimental. We must understand how to work and survive within this context and not to be burdened by the chaos, but work within this, to compose and achieve our goals. These paintings are justification to overcome these obstacles with a unique set of compositions and relations of materials, colors, shapes, and applications. Chaos or perfection? Maybe neither, except a little more reliance on the unknown.
The series strived to eliminate the paint brush and relied on experimental processes related to Jackson Pollock or Gerhard Richter. Most of the paint was dripped, molded, and formed separately on panes of glass and then carefully removed and applied to works over a period of two years. With the concept of control always at the forefront, there are varying degrees of inclusion and exclusion playing in the compositions. Some applications are customized and forced into relation with intention, where as others were saved from discard and subconsciously brought to life.
If you break and artist’s hand, he’ll find a way to make the work. . If you take away his paint brush, it eventually gets replaced. What we see is ultimately the artist mind displayed before you with all it’s energies, inconsistencies, and persistence.
