Painting - Acrylic & Oil On Canvas
This is one piece of a large body of work, mostly in oil and acrylic on canvas, titled Icons. The series explores language and communication breakdown. I began by writing a word in each painting (the title of each), the word overlapping and interlacing and finally becoming a nonsensical pattern. The image arranged on top is an attempt to clarify meaning--yet, the works always seem to serve as elaborate, mysterious puzzles to most who see them. Perhaps most import is the attention paid to the minutest detail--the careful choosing of each word, the painstaking construction of each pattern, the clarity of the painted iconic object. The irony of the process, in the lieu of the strange, cryptic resulting image, ultimately becomes either comic or slightly off-beat, sometimes disturbing and always thought provoking!
These are wonderful conversation pieces and colorful, fun, artful additions to children’s rooms!
