Why do you paint on shaped canvases?
Rectangles are nice – they don’t distract from the painting.
But how can you look at that shape and not want to mess with it?
I shape them to evoke specific feelings.
The points, the curves, the splinters, all move me in different ways.
You know what else? – When I paint, it feels like I’m actually making the object – I want it right there in the room with me.
Taking away the rectangle helps that.
Why do you carve into them?
Because painting just isn’t enough – I have to get more physically involved.
Those carved lines are like cutting into flesh, they’re like actually participating in the movement going on.
Even when I draw, I’m very physical – you can’t believe the the amount of leads I break.
There’s a long ways to go with these oil paintings, I’m curious where they will take me – that’s my focus.
I also have a stack of drawings waiting to be explored through woodblock prints.
I plan to bring those two mediums – (oil painting and printmaking), into one cohesive body of work.
At some point I want to paint a series of watercolors that keep going through my head – I can almost taste them!
And then there’s a body of work in stained glass that keeps calling – we’ll see.
