MFA ’11 Fine Arts 2D
I concentrate on the precision of a color and the intrigue of color relationships. I invent a series in which color systems and experimentation keep me stimulated.
My series include abstract paintings, white-line woodblock prints, landscapes, a daily color diary which I post on Instagram, and most recently, accordion books.
The two paintings in this exhibition are assembled bands of color which project a colored shadow onto the wall. Colors shift, razor thin edges appear, and vibrations occur. I create each work by hand-rolling acrylic on BFK Rives paper in a larger dimension than I feel the color design requires. This allows me to move the paper around to adjust the proportions of each color until they visually hold an interesting relationship. I finish with narrow accents and interference pigment. I use alliteration in the title of each painting, echoing the action of the subject color.
