2017-  Sandwich/Bandage Painting Series

In 2004 I made small works called 'section paintings' which were small versions or small chunk sections of my large works. These pieces are fueling some of my new work today, the 'sandwich/bandage painting series'. In these works, paint is sandwiched between a wooden support structure and the canvas. The canvas is also applied to wet paint and acts as a bandage. This series is consistent with a mending process that I use throughout my work, as well as reversing traditional processes of making a painting. The series includes "Section Paintings", "Sunken Paintings", and Bed Paintings".
