Painting Gallery II
My painting process begins through a layering of materials by adhering paper to panels. The receptive and absorbent nature of paper allows me to incise and abrade the surface, building up imagery through repeated applications of acrylic paint, charcoal, graphite and oil pastels. Each layer is pushed and pulled until the desired imagery feels right and a sense of history is developed, landing in a place that exists between beauty and loss, decay and growth.
