2018 : Materiality & Systems

Improvisation became my process. Yes And. Yes And.

In general I am not bitter, but I was fed up with the status quo that I was settling for in my own artwork as well as that all around me. The previous years artistic expansion and freedom fueled me to continue pushing beyond such boundaries. Literally. My wood substates allowed the painting to continue onto the sides as with Circumscribe 2.18.2 and most all my work. Irregularity became part of my methodology.

At times, the end result of surface exploration becomes alien even to me, as in Systematization with Luminescent Rise 9.18.1.

I liberated my emotions into cathartic channels, modalities and expanded all my formalities to become pure creation. My mantra became "I am creation". Its all so therapeutic that I felt limitless, whole and on purpose.

Ironically as an under-accomplished and unrecognized artist, I was (and still am to a degree) able to created without limitations and expectations of an outside influence. I am aware of the progression from painting to painting and see the cohesiveness, although I continue to find myself explaining to others that I am process based, material and emotionally motivated artist. I create in the moment and can only commit to the impression of previous compounded moments as my influence. Much like the Abstract Expressionist movement.
