Paintings

I’ve recently returned to painting, working through fractures and fissures, spaces and contrasts, lines and grids, as the visual language.

I’ve found that I am in a new kind of relationship with the painting, as it is being made, and that the painting and I are companioning one-another. I begin of course by bringing my language, experiences and contexts, and I start with something – most often a doodle or semi-autonomous line. Then I sit with the image, and listen for what it needs to be, and I do my best to respond to that. I’ll often leave multiple “unfinished” paintings, just to be with, and will contemplate them off-and-on for long periods of silence. When a painting speaks back, when it pulls at me, and carries in it a spark that is undeniable, I will listen and respond by continuing to work on it.

I’ve posted some information on each painting below. All paintings listed here are for sale, unless specified. Prices inclusive of all taxes.

I’ve listed two prices for each painting. The bold-strikethrough price is what I normally would charge. The second bold price is a sliding-scale cost, if that’s what you can afford. Read more about this here.

Each comes with a wooden frame, either painted black or stained with walnut oil – your choice. PayPal, and Square Cash are accepted.

(I’m generally OK with payment plans.)
