Here are my current thoughts on the function of painting genres and mediums in my studio:
Still Life for facture (how to put the paint down) and for composition
Landscape for color
Collage for composition
Drawing for new ideas
The figure has been and probably always will be the main focus of my work. However, with still life I have the freedom to explore and not take the work itself too seriously. In these paintings I focus on bold colors, flat compositions, and the impermanence of the subjects (objects) and where they sit.
More to come…
