About the BRIGHTLY COLORED SEPARATES series, 2010
These paintings engage the slightly off-kilter, the not-quite-right, the un-straight line, discordant color, and awkward alliances. The visual language is derived loosely from everyday objects and imagery, like ships-in-bottles, car dealer flags, construction materials, mind maps, fireworks, floor plans, the number eight, Lily Pulitzer dresses, geometric motifs from my father’s old paintings, pet cages, and images from art history. Many of the paintings are based on collages from my sketchbooks.
