Ready to Hang
This series of works began in early 2015 as a way to deal with the numerous paintings, prints and drawings on paper I was creating. Not satisfied with the work as finished pieces, I began to cut them up. I realized that through destruction, something new and far more interesting was being created. I began to put these pieces back together and each became their own idiosyncratic puzzle. I let the shapes and colors guide the layout while at the same time pushing to make the compositions more complex. In creating these works I was inspired by numerous sources: from stars and planets, geology and topography to textile design and fashion.
This work is covered with a clear epoxy and has a glossy finish.
