The first finished in a new series of woven trash paintings. A conversation about contemporary concerns with the mid-18th century ukiyo-e artists, masters of dynamic composition. I am really giving myself more freedom to make un-beautiful. New accomplishments - the color of the pink has actually stirred a gag reflex in a few people.
Reflection (Wave at Kanagawa). Found plastics, acrylic on paper. 38" x 56"
This is a new series I am starting. It will be a body of work in which I have conversations with Hiroshige and Hokusai, learning from their dynamic compositions, but incorporating a hopefully grotesque element with my use of refuse.
