Paint forms are a series of mixed media work where paint materials are assembled as abstract forms to draw relationships between process, presence, and transformation.

Paint is both the subject matter and medium. Sculptural application of paint arranged in collage presents questions about the the present moment, current state.

In 40 small works on panel and wood created in 2020, art materials take on forms from the creative process in given time, representing paint’s purpose.

Work in Embodiment

I delivered two oil paintings to 3rd Street Gallery in Philadelphia yesterday. They’re going to be in the show, Embodiment: Figure In Art. It feels good to have work out on display in the world.

Two 30×30″ figurative oil paintings on stretched clothing are in this show. Both from my series of Figures on Clothes, Flowered Linen Dress was completed in 2006, Linen Dress with Pocket was painted in 2006 and reworked in 2019.

Drop off day just so happened to be on the last night of Freedom Swing. It was nice to get some long overdue dancing in while in town. The same thing happened in Boston. I kind of love this trend of galleries being in close proximity to good dancing.
