WORKING NOTES / WAYFARIN STRANGER

For those interested in how a painting gets from here to there. I created these paintings in the late summer of 2009 for the opening of Coda after putting my daughter to bed, between the hours of 8pm and 4am. Alone in the drafty studio, I don two pairs of pants and extra socks and am most productive then, without interruption.

I created a playlist of songs I listened to over and over: The Wayfarin Stranger soundtrack consists of as many versions of Poor Wayfaring Stranger as I could find, Jack White’s live version (obsessively), Mad world, Lou Reed’s Perfect day, and pretty much everything by Jeffrey Luck Lucas.

JULY 20 2009- the lifted veil,the inability to soothe my child's pain....the series has been an elusive trickster: unforthcoming, hard as lifting rocks to find one good thing


In this series I use gesture, color, and texture to explore the places where the broken and the transcendent meet. The paintings are unified by an emotional use of color, and by heavily worked surfaces which almost appear to have sustained water-damage. I re-use old paintings, actively "distressing" the surface by adding then scraping away layers to give each painting a history: histandingwoman.jpgdden then revealed, just below the surface. The way I work with paintings is to respond to what is evolving before me via the chance effects created by this process. My hope is to affirm a more authentic concept of beauty while making paintings which retain an evocation of mystery.

.Working notes: for those interested in how a painting gets from here to there. I created these paintings in the late summer of 2009 for the opening of Coda after putting my daughter to bed, between the hours of 8pm and4am. Alone in the drafty studio, I don 2 pairs of pants and extra socks and am most productive then, without interruption.

I created a playlist of songs I listened to over and over: the series soundtrack:--as many versions of
Wayfaring Stranger as I could find, Jack White’s live version obsessively, Mad world, Lou Reed’s Perfect day and Jeffrey Luck Lucas.

The paintings are unified by color palette and emotional overtone-which is why the painting of three Monkeys looking expectantly upward is included among the other strangers, “going over Jordon, ... just going home.
