Statement

Continuation: New paintings on two canvas panels employ a direct and responsive approach to the surface of the canvas. The paintings are composed of underpainting and superimpositions of lines executed, at times, by swift gestures of the brush and slow, conscious and deliberate structures of mark-making.

As with earlier text-based paintings that avoid suggestions of composition and situate the paintings as fragments of a larger space, a formal repetition of elements and lack of any perspectival space are used to convey the painted space beyond the limits of the frame. This all-over approach to the structures in the paintings are characteristic to this work.
