mark making

Mark Making is looming large on my mind recently. It may be the most influential way that paintings define themselves in relation to other forms of image making. I am obsessed with trying to create "noise" with my marks that fuse the figure and ground to each other. This idea relates to the scene in I Heart Huckabees where Dustin Hoffman's nose begins to disintegrate into small squares of space. 


A couple of recent head studies exploring mark, each painting is 7" x 5".

16" x 20"
Another beach painting that I may have completed in 1 session, please let that be true. 

And once again small shifts in these two ongoing paintings, I think both are done.

24" x 36"

3' x 4'
