In this abstract painting, large sweeping curves cut across a densely textured, variegated background created by applying color to modeling paste and sanding down through multiple applications of paint. I use MDF because it can take a great deal of work: scratching, sanding dripping, carving into the paint, and yet, because I sand again and again, the surface is smooth and sealed, thus the texture is visual not tactile. Photographs don't begin to catch the complexity of this, that is, they are so necessarily reductive. The whole does hold up in an integrative manner and approaches (if it doesn't achieve) my goal of creating a painting that is both beautiful and interesting.
