Friday, September 20, 5-7 pmOctober First Friday Reception – Friday, October 4, 5-8 pmThere seems to be an inexorable pull in the forces of nature towards either order or chaos. Perhaps it goes back and forth.
This gathering of paintings is an exploration of that idea, that we are drawn by forces outside ourselves towards some kind of resolution. We can get caught up in the weeds or drawn by currents – our efforts at control often seem futile or illusory. When caught in a riptide the rule of thumb is to relax and float with it instead of fighting to escape. In this body of work I have tried to allow myself to float freely and fully experience the paint insteadof trying to impose my will.
