UNDOING: This new series of black paintings are committed to a restrained minimalist aesthetic without including representational imagery. I’m drawn to the power and presence black can bring to a composition, it’s expressive possibilities, its visual heft and ways black can fill an empty space. This minimalist sensibility engages with the painting as a visual object – engaging the eye more than the mind. Undoing starts by painting over what was there. I undo by covering or burying most of the image with a field of black draining any meaning. Black becomes the primary dynamic, transforming the work and in a way, it’s a fix.
