PROCESS

“I am an abstract expressionist/action painter. Before beginning a work, I usually have some concept of what I wish to do and it usually involves the natural environment. My canvass is laid out on the floor. I do not use an easel. The tools I use could be sponges, knives, brushes, spatulas etc. The colors I will use are laid out before I begin. I start by applying blobs of paint on the canvass in different areas and mix colors directly on the canvass. As I walk around the canvass, I continually layer on paint and the color and shapes begin to take form and this gives me a direction to take as I work. There is constant moving, motion and layering of color. When I feel I have achieved what I want and the work feels harmonious to me and most importantly makes sense to me, I stop. Then I will put the painting on an easel and observe if there is anything more to be done.. No matter how long it takes to complete the work I complete the painting from start to finish whether it takes one hour or hours. That is action painting.”
