Identity crisis.
It’s, “Let’s do the time-warp again”: Painting has a long timeline. I am using painting’s trace of time, as a grammar to explore an altering human, cultural & economic identity. This vocabulary of incurred prejudice, obsession, glory or failure, becomes a lexicon, used in free fall much like the attributes, misunderstandings, realities or chance that build history itself into the conclusions that impact our collective memory/identity. As there is behavioral economics, this is behavioral art history.
To capture this, I am interested in the shift of stepping into a painting, both literally and in concept. The impression becomes an inside out figuration. My usage of framing is an effort to create a portal, much like contemporary virtual spaces. Like a time warp. For me, my paintings are both literal and conceptual portals.
