Serene Pleasures

530.00

This is an original painting, 16" x 16" acrylic and fabric on panel.

As sometimes happens, I started this painting with a color scheme in mind. I love working with these deep blues and violets, and this painting makes me think of stars in a night sky.

The Attraction series

My painting practice is fundamentally an exploration of surface through pattern, color, and texture. I have a magpie-like attraction to bright, colorful, decorated objects, but an orderly mind, a love for the grid and a strong schooling (from my architectural design studies) to mistrust the superficial. These contradictory urges come together in my paintings. I work in many layers of acrylic media, starting with a repeating fabric design at the base and adding elements both rigid and planned (geometric stencil repeats) and loose and unplanned (drips, washes, crackled layers). Abstracted floral forms and decorative elements make an appearance, like dreams of old-fashioned textiles. With these paintings, I celebrate the surface.
