I am a painter who collages different ways of making marks to accomplish a desired texture, color, or opacity for each form. Most marks are made from paint, crayon, pencil or pastel. The final painting is simply a composite of these varied marks and based on their formation can behave as animated creature or moving environments.
There are many things I question while working but some of the most consistent thoughts include: when does a landscape become a figure? Is there a distinction between drawing and painting? And perhaps most importantly: what does content mean to abstract painting?
