Golden Ratios

Thought I would share with you another silkscreen print I did.

I really like this one, but unfortunately, it does not fit in with my other prints as a cohesive body of work. The image is inspired by the golden ratio found in life and nature.

There are two versions of this. The one with the red nautilus shell is an edition of seven, while the purple nautilus shell one is an edition of two.

Paint and Destroy

This is regarding the "Concept" body of work.

People ask me sometimes how I paint. There is no simple answer to that... I paint in many different ways, and most often, I don't know what the hell I am doing. Really. I rarely sketch out a composition, nor do I know exactly the subject matter I am going to paint. I have a vague idea of it all: a vague imaginary sketch in my head, a vague composition, and a vague subject matter (portrait, hand, body part...etc...). The only sure idea I keep in mind when I paint is the concept, message, or underlying meaning I want the image to communicate to the audience.

So, if I were to sum it up, in general, I paint and destroy.

Yes. I destroy what is perfect. I destroy a perfectly white canvas with globs of color. I move the pigment around on the surface to form a perfect image of something (like a face or any other subject matter) and then I destroy that perfect image, and destroy and destroy some more until I get a finished painting.

I have created a page demonstrating this method, documenting the creation/destruction of "Alleviated Aggravation." Check out "Paint and Destroy" in the menu of links above, or click here.

This is how I work; I paint and destroy.
