Under The Surface

My work continues to explore abstract interpretations of environment. Through destruction of established paintings new works emerge by carving into the foundation of the painting. These works are built from an aesthetic game of chess, an intuitive mark making process. I build up representational landscapes and break the predictable endgame with slashes, spills, and drips watching for more interesting outcomes to present themselves to the surface like a stone block to the sculptor.
