This body of work marks an experimental phase in my career. Every week I tested a new material or technique, uncovering the endless possibilities and limitations that this technique held. Also, I demanded that every week I complete at least five paintings. This forced me to work rapidly and instinctively. Highly influenced by the Abstract Expressionists, the works are based upon the essential art elements of color, balance, shape, line, repetition and value. Each piece a layered composition, that often begins with the compositional arrangements of sewn canvas. Due to the rapid constraints I placed myself under, I found that acrylic was the optimal medium for this endeavor and that I would frequently work on several paintings at one time. Because of this, many paintings show influences of others in them while some are opposite reactions to other paintings.
I call this body of work Process, because the works are not exclusively about the final outcome. The progression of actions that brought them to their current state is most important. The scratches, drips, smears and broad strokes that mark each movement made, are deliberately left so that the viewer can witness the process of creation too.
