I know you are here somewhere #1
The eye wants to make you believe that there is always something there.
A trick of the brain that makes something fully formed and solid, given only the slightest glimpse. The suggestion of an object gives rise to the desire to know more. There is something promising in the space a window frames, looking outwards toward another place. This work along with others from the series of the same title map an internal scape and an inner dialogue, suggestions of security and safety made real with ephemeral gestures, the act of mark making.
An extension to previous explorations of surface structure in painting. The process began with a return to previously painted unresolved large surfaces. I have deliberately chosen a reduced palette to enhance my focus, encouraging myself to be transported through the making process into a visceral landscape. My hope is that the viewer will be similarly moved.
