The grid restricts my gesture making, in order to evoke the gestures made by paint. The drips, evidence of the movement and energy of paint, become choreography. Patterns are put into motion and fall apart as the flow of time slows down. The repetition of pouring prepares a ground on which each moment can articulate itself. The paintings will continue to change throughout their life, as pieces break and the painting is affected by the cold and the heat, expanding, contracting, softening and becoming elastic, or changing with the weather to become brittle and hard. As energy, the paint does not restrict itself to my process, and our dialogue has turned to the form of a shared ecology. In this exhibition, works are included that appear more expressionistic, and are made while cleaning the studio. Paint is wiped from my hand, cleaned from the can, picked up from the floor, put on to structures, to make a new series of works.
