"All In a Dream," original painting, 40" x 40"
The full-blown idea for this painting came to me in a dream! The end result isn't exactly as I saw it in the dream, but I like the way it turned out.
The "Stream of Consciousness" paintings are fun to work on. I start with a piece of scrunched up canvas, and pour paint over it to create wrinkles. The set-in wrinkles add texture and depth to the finished art.
These paintings are built up in layers, using household objects scavenged from thrift stores to make interesting primal marks. My tools include spatulas, muffin tins, a colander, the rims of cups and bowls, bubble wrap and various ice cube trays.
I see these paintings as a window into my subconscious mind. Starting with an idea drawn from a dream, an observation or a vision, I develop the composition without much conscious thought. I'm guided by intuition when making decisions about color and design, and the resulting pieces are evocative of ancient mystical art.
Sustainability is an important part of my artistic practice, and this painting was created using repurposed leftover house paint that would otherwise go to waste.
