This series explores abstracting my paintings using the Painting with a Camera Technique. As with all of my work, it is a process and way to Think New Forms.
The series is an exploration of dialogues. Pictorially it creates a dialogue between representational and non-representational (figurative and abstract) art. It expands the conversation that has ensued for over a century between painting and photography. Conceptually it explores the dialogue between a formulated approach and chance opportunity. Because the series realizes these dialogues, these polarities of opposition, it, therefore, embodies their inherent contradictions. These contradictions, in part, are manifest in the process of creating each image.
Below is a small selection from the series. The complete statement on the series is coming soon.
