oil on inkjet prints
this series developed in tandem with the driving paintings i have been doing for several years. often, i end up with far too many images to paint from, so a number of these became the support for a new series. these works share a common intention with the windshield paintings, but their expression is different. here, the gestural paint strokes are stand-ins for the fluid marks of water, obscuring sections of the windshield while selectivly picking up color from the environment beyond. shapes collide and overlap to create a seemingly random arrangement, but these works owe their ultimate form from the image underneath.
