Current Series - Notes

 

The current series shown on this site are all acrylic on canvas, 24"x30".

 

There are approximately 150 pieces in various stages of completion. 

 

All photos are cropped at the edges. 

 

The work is intended as a series rather than individual pieces.

 

The subject matter is youth. The images are bits of personal memory transformed into metaphors 'moved forward' to the present or recent observations 'pushed back' to childhood. The techniques vary but primarily combine a childlike painting style with line drawing. 

 

Paintings are made of ordinary acrylic paint and store bought canvas of the same size. This medium was chosen to try to be creative with materials common in my 1970's childhood. The static size is to try to work with limitations rather than avant guard experimentation. 

 

I hope to post the entire series so it can be seen together in some form. Postings will likely be weekly for quite a time until the series is complete.
