Suspended Bodies of Water
- While I use a variety of materials and processes my goal is consistent. Although the materials I use are not always the same, recurring formal concerns and subject link the images. My intent determines which medium I use, each uniquely allowing me to express distinctive sensations. I handle my materials in a manner so that marks are created without interfering with the inherent way the medium moves upon the surface. As an example in Fly-by-Night, the image came to my mind in a sudden moment of clarity. In my studio, I knew what materials and physical movements I would need to use to achieve the results I wanted. I placed over sized paper on the floor and poured charcoal powder on it in a particular formation, I then proceeded to tilt and bend the paper forcing the charcoal to move across the field leaving behind my marks.
This slide show is of images that are from the "Suspended Bodies of Water" series.
