    About The Work

    These works on Mylar are part of my Paintings in Space series.  With every "Painting in Space" room-sized installation that I create and install, I work two-dimensionally as well.  I find that each way of making fuels the other.  I use the same raw pigments and paints that are found in the Paintings in Space Installations. For each piece, I pour water, ink, and raw pigments onto the Mylar carefully distributing the puddles.  As the works begin to dry, a battle ensues between gravity and myself.  More than once, I have discovered most of the liquid has seeped onto the floor.  Over the course of several days, I manipulate the puddles and colors, always taking into consideration the element of surprise.  Once the pigments dry, I engage in drawing a multitude of tiny circles and shapes onto the Mylar.  Bold color, intricate drawing, and a central square form play off one another nicely.

    The translucent quality of these pigments and the Mylar leave an ethereal impression. I prefer to hang them unframed and floating away from the wall using small magnets.
