This is the most recent work I have completed within the deconstruction of the canvas. These deconstructed figural works represent the deconstructed method of learning and being an artist(past history of art follows a deconstructed path of the work, but not the method within the artist). There is not only much to learn within every fiber of a piece of canvas, but endless possibilities of connection outward within all of it. It stood out to me while working on this series, how is it that while the while course of art history has been a process of construction and deconstruction, that no note has been made of the possibility of the deconstruction of the canvas and frame themselves? And the correlation of the physical work of art to the body of the artist. The correlation of the artwork and time spent on it to the time of the artist's life. The work as artist's moments, and the body as the artist's life.
