Golden

Feeling like it was time, as my new studio space is all set up, I moved on from crimson and red paintings to orange.

The first rendezvous with orange was a steaming hot disaster. I am too embarrassed to show you…trust me it was BAD.

So, I decided to step back and paint something I know and love fruit. Because orange comes next on the color-wave spectrum I started with basic orange. Good times. I dislike orange in so many ways. I believe the color is my least favorite. I dont know if it is because I live here in TN, the Volunteer state. The UT (university of Tennessee) colors are orange and white. Considering my lack of sport and not attending UT, I never got behind orange the way my neighbors and loved ones have.

But, for this painting process I am going for it. Full on orange. Here is the work in progress:

Thank you so much for following my painting journey and thank you for overlooking my painting mess.

My best,

Remember Reflect Reform In this work, I have been exploring phenomena of memory augmentation. I experimented with reflections and cinematic images by juxtaposing photographs, paint, wood, and mylar. The direction of the work includes painting intimate, reflective, observations of augmented memories.  I began by building a cabinet of curiosities as a way to form a tableau painting and experiment with different media. Inspired by the relief paintings by artist Sally Han, I built a model of a Victorian cabinet using tenets of Darwin's theory of evolution. I painted on a variety of surfaces including wood, photographs, and adding raw lumber to the pieces. In this process, I disassembled the cabinet to give autonomy to each piece. Although I diverted from the original idea of a final installation, there was an impulse to paint larger. Adding mylar was yet another way to accentuate reflection as a part of the critical dialogue with the work. The final result offers an opportunity to remember, reflect, and reform.
