About the Artists

, United States

"My work falls into the category of non-objective painting that comes out of the American Mid-Century modern styles such as Abstract Expressionism. By utilizing a different type of traditionally feminine material, sculpted cloth, curvilinear shapes are created in glue-soaked fabric that is subsequently painted with spray paint, oil paint, and at times, liquid gold or silver leaf. The final result is a continuous organic textured surface that pushes the viewer into an emotional place of meditation. The purpose of this series of work is to start a conversation, to elicit an emotional response, positive or negative, in those who experience it, and to empower the viewer to create their own meaning. How is this made?For years I have scoured the area looking for recyclable stretched canvas (I will buy smaller canvases new if needed) and large enough pieces of cloth to use in my work. I have quite the collection! Through years of development, trial and error, I have found the types of fabric that work well for this and now understand how each type of cloth responds to the process. It begins with a thick layer of white glue that is brushed over the whole canvas. I float a piece of cloth that is larger than the edges of the canvas and let the glue soak into the fabric. This creates a workable, formable, clay like effect that can be sculpted into the organic shapes I frequently use. This layer begins to become unworkable in about 20 minutes and I need to work quickly though it takes 24 to 36 hours to dry completely before the next step can be applied. I then cover the fabric with enamel paint, apply whatever spray paints that are needed for the effect I am looking for, and let that dry completely. The next application is that of a glaze or other application of oil paint. When that dries, I add the liquid gold leaf in solvent. After it cures, a layer of varnish is applied."
