    About The Work

    Architecturally resonant, photographic fragments I shoot of my paintings in the studio process are the raw material for the codex multiples. ‘Entrada’ evokes an entrance, and also the colonial overtaking of the Americas, especially when paired with “codex”, or pictorial notation of shared, grassroots, possibly secret histories and systems. This image starts from a single photograph of a large-scale watercolor with column-like strips of saturated color and line. Then, a rosette, like a rose, a floribunda, enters. It's an intruder—like a strange new script, made from an oil and collage canvas that did not survive the studio. Still, the sense that life is flowing behind and beyond it is strong. I sense the pairing of red-tails in flight above tumbles of grasses and rock.
