I have always loved texture.  Textiles with nubs and bits stuck in them, tree bark with cracks and splits and swirls, stone with many edges, paintings with really, really thick paint.

I decided to create a group of works with highly textured surfaces without having to use tons of acrylic paint.  Thus, you have patching compound used as a foundation to get the surface I wanted without desaturating the color.

Working with patching compound lets me be a kid again.  Anything goes from pounding on it, to finger painting, to using tools to texture and carve it. 

After it dries, the surface suggests a concept to me and I explore that with color and value.


One of the things I love about these works is that most of them can be hung in more than one direction.  There may be no "right side up".  As the perspective changes, your reaction to what you see will change as well.


Because these are highly textured works, and because a number of them are very dark in value (Can you say BLACK?) they were very difficult to photograph.  If you are interested in purchasing any of these, please contact me and I will be happy to send you more images to give you a better idea of how the piece looks under different lighting conditions, and how that may affect how the color and texture reads.  And of course, nothing compares to seeing it with your own eyes.


Enjoy.
