The series developed intuitively over several years. Looking back on it, a general sense of dislocation seems to dominate. Please note how each thematic scaffold is embraced, not addressed. I’ve made a conscious choice to avoid overt political commentary or any authorial stridency. I wish to stay in the background. The brevity of each text is meant to complement the stasis of painting as an art form.
Texts are applied with acrylic paint on a section of blank canvas reserved for that purpose. Imagery is generally executed in oil, sometimes over an acrylic underpainting. The words are my own invention. I do not quote anyone, though artists, writers, public figures and literary characters are occasionally referenced in titles.
The series is ongoing.
