Discover Solitude
Discover Solitude is a series of paintings in search of a moment of discovery. They are landscapes of nowhere in particular. Places I can only get to through painting. They are built through many layers of paint applied and removed and applied again until that moment of discovery is found. Each piece holds more history than can be seen on the surface. Some have entirely different paintings underneath them, some are supported on wood panels removed from my house. All of this becomes part of the finished painting. One action directs another until I find something that feels new. Something that holds mystery. Something that feels like a return to myself.
