American West Painting Series

Diverse European and American Venues

The American West series is an exploration of the industrial road landscape of The United States.

The works on canvas cut-outs are apparent in their substrate as is the process of making in the final works. Rabbit skin glue to seal the material, and then oil gessoe to provide for a surface to accept the oil color is visible in some of the cutouts. The loose canvas cut-outs contrast the traditional, formality of stretched linen rectangles. The exposure of process and construction makes apparent my presence as the shaper of the visuals. This and the work-a-day subject matter of the work provides for an egalitarian body of paintings.
