Ready to Hang
made in variable moments between 2007 and 2015
3/4" remnant plywood grabbed, oil paint applied in an expressionistic but minimal manner...laid to rest for a few years...masked and painted over with acrylic (they say that is bad...but I have never seen any issues with this in several years...letting it cure for years in a dry climate makes it a non-issue I think)...laid to rest for another few years...then drawn over with prismacolor pencil. Four entities in their separate veins that eventually are drawn to connect. Connect Four.
Hi - brief background....I am a 15 year resident of Jackson Hole, Wyoming although I'm from Nashville TN originally and also lived in Knoxville and Krakow, Poland for a bit. Although my primary career has been as a licensed architect here in Jackson, I have continued to produce and sell art for the past 16 years. My method of producing art has been on expressing what is within and what I feel needs to be from the canvas, rather than imitating what I see. It's an exploration with few if any preconceived notions and develops in a very non-linear way. People often ask me ..."what IS it?"...and often followed by, "it looks LIKE..." as if it needs to be some recognizable form or look LIKE anything. Why does a painting need to look LIKE anything at all? Do people ask musicians what their music sounds LIKE, as if it needs to have some recognizable characteristic, as if music must sound like the ocean, or the wilderness, etc.?
