From Within and Without - Paintings

Creator not accepting inquiries

I used a Shibori dye-technique to reveal a grid folded from the canvas’ own dimensions. Then, I added oil paint over a clear sealant, building off of the dye patterns to suggest form and space. I became interested in how each painting held unique properties before the oil paint was even added. Successive painting decisions were built on this foundation, elaborating and continuing to “unfold” something that seemed to spawn from within the fabric itself. The resulting paintings represent a balance between the surface’s undeniable physicality, a longing for wilderness, and a touch of my own West Coast utopian fantasy.
