recent years I have been fascinated with frames: frame parts, sections of
monumental frames, one frame inside another, like a Russian nesting doll (matryoshka). The frame elicits questions such
as: What is present within the frame or what is absent; what is brought in and
what is left outside.
most of my recent works,
this painting, I hint at a larger picture: larger both physically—namely,
hinting that there is a continuation to this section and
metaphorically—hinting that the picture was previously different, enabling one
to sense the passing time that changed the hues and textures, blurred the
boundaries, destroyed some parts, and left holes. These
"flaws," gaps, and patina added to the "segment" are
essentially the subject of the painting.
