Between Near and Far: Somewhere in Between
Prior to January 2010, my work in painting focused on opposites, such as the difference between the instinctual and the planned. Formally I was interested in the need to veil, and the urge to reveal the thinking and processes in the creation of a painting. Through the juxtaposition of these things I sought to strip landscape of its inherent divinity and create a new kind oflandscape using color, atmosphere, and mark making. My goal was to make the monumental insignificant and secondary to my process and create works with clear intent, a physical process, and an interest in how color can be used to suggest the illusions of space, time, and depth. Currently, my work has undergone major changes in regards to content. This thesis will explain the journey I have undertaken during the past two and a half years while discussing my reasons for abandoning my initial proposal for something based less in academic discourse and more in personal introspection.
