These sculptures are an exploration of Formalist / Minimalist work (which I began as painting) expanded into three dimensional “objects”. These works are created using a completely unique process developed over years of experimentation and consideration. Working out of the two dimensional picture plane, I was interested in the idea of paintings as “objects”. Working through this exploration, the natural evolution was to create actual objects which occupy the space (of the world) as such.
In keeping with the reductivist agenda, I decided to use the simplest materials and techniques I could. The works are created using archival museum board (basically mat board), an aliphatic resin- which is a purified form of wood glue and acrylic paint. The result is completely archival works made with the most basic of techniques and tools.
(Note: The sculptures are installed (often) using a single nail or screw, through which the head of the screw or nail fits through an opening on the back.)
