statement

The way we interact with our environment influences the way we see things and frame the things we see. We take insubstantial, fragmented images and fill them out to make complete narratives.

It is this tension between the negative space, what is withheld from the frame of the painting and what is suggested that engages the viewer in a conversation with my work. I am showing part of a picture or world which exists beyond the realm of the canvas in the mind of the viewer. This conversation between the viewer and the painting, between description and abstraction is the most vital element of my painting.

New piece underway. I like the textures and colours so far ... plenty of time to screw up fingers. No guts no glory or something.

This is another piece generated from my kayaking around Toronto (amongst other places) this past summer and photographing and sketching from the kayak. Good times . This piece is 18x18”

I’ve pulled this out at the studio and have been enjoying the space and colours. It’s from a couple of years ago when I think I might have had a better idea of what day of the week it is .

Apparently it’s usually thiserday or thaterday or something. Yesterday I had myself convinced it was Wednesday, the one day a week I have someplace to be ... virtually at least. (Bridge) strange days !

This piece from my winter solstice series is called pale shadows and is 36x36”

Late Sunday evening painting session accompanied by an #andersoncraftales .

Falling behind on laundry and household chores. I’m pretty sure they’ll be there later for now I’m playing hooky at the studio for a bit longer.
