I’m currently making Introvert and Extrovert paintings relative to the persuasion of my consciousness. The Introvert paintings, built with one plastic stick and viscous oil paint, capture my haptic involvement and record my time of engagement. The current paintings from this subset are titled The Extrovert paintings are acrylic, painted mostly on the reverse, with canvas stretched over wood with tacks. The process of hammering the tacks into the wood, painting each of the surfaces, and deconstructing everything is psychical, detached, and engaged. I have to decide which side of the canvas is the front and back. It can go both ways; I want to show what’s inside.
