Series - Untitled with anonymous female squatting #3, Oil and wax over acrylic, 60" x 36"

My first love, is figure painting. I like the spontaneous aspect of applying paint, similar to what the Japanese call "wabi sabi", beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete". I apply acrylics, allowing the paint, color and texture to dictate it's look. Once I have the under-painting, I again use pallet knives, brushes and techniques to define the imagery. I have been experimenting with oil and wax to create layers of color, they can be transparent or opaque, sometimes scraped away to reveal the under-painting below.

I usually work in series and apply only descriptive titles. I want the viewer to create their own narrative and impressions. These paintings are from anonymous images on the internet. My hope is the viewer will take a long look at the painting where they will see layers showing thru. I'm interested in a visceral connection. I'm interested in the human experience, our preconceived ideas of the figure and sometimes its relationship to the world.
