These are 2012-2018, from a slowly braking series of car/travel paintings. The curator, Kirsten Kucer, was familiar with this earlier work and felt it would be a great fit for the exhibition. I am always glad for new venues to show them. (And sell them.. In this exhibition, interested buyers are referred directly to the artist for purchase, so.. contact me!)
They reflect a particular kind of labor, observation, love, and matching of color/texture to the reference images. I’m still there but I like to visit places I haven’t been. I suppose this ‘place’ used to be ‘the past’, in effect, and now.. it's somewhere a little more abstract.
