Technique

MARBLED PIECES: Created during one sitting, the acrylic paints are layered and blended, smoothed or mottled to create a fluid, nearly three-dimensional composition. Metal, plastic and organic tools are used to create a range of textures within the painting surface. This technique requires swift and dynamic movements, as the acrylics respond and adhere according to environmental conditions and surface structure.

PROGRESSION PIECES: Created during multiple sittings, through various iterations, applications and moods, each painting is an idea that has typically gone sideways — due to time constraints or structural integrity — and morphs into an altogether different piece. During construction, the canvas may be scratched, strained or beaten like a rug to achieve the final vision.
