Statement

Petri Dish Paintings

2010-present

These paintings are executed by way of experimentation. A straight line grid drawing is laid out. Once the drawing is made, color is applied. Colors are built upon one another, attending to the suggestion of the composition and particular formations of the droplets.

I approach the creation of these works somewhat as a scientist approaches his/her research: here, interested in the aesthetics and the process of discovery rather than in solving a problem, I consider the ways in which the colors’ chemistries respond to one another, and the ways in which the viscosities of paint react.

The inspirations for this work range from the very small to the very large, and vary in their approaches, including direct observation and conceptual understanding. I’ve considered mold and bacteria growing on a pinecone and the expansive nature of the constellations; domestic life in its minutiae and centuries art, both present and past.
