My recent paintings represent a departure in terms of medium and technique. For most of my career I have worked on a flat horizontal surface with a variety of different materials and mediums. For this show I have been utilizing an easel and integrating the influence of gravity to manipulate acrylic paint. This has given me a new array of possibilities for experimenting with the physical properties and expression of this versatile medium.
With the title 'Landfall' I was thinking of something coming into view, as I was becoming more accustomed to working vertical and these seemed to have a more atmospheric landscape sensibility.
