Works and Words

New Work 2017 and 2018

These paintings are begun with charcoal gesture. The oil paint with its layers and viscosity, slows down the process of composing. These works are however, evolved out of works on paper and done in the same time frame. They begin to settle down. The subject matter, as it is fussed over, takes on a formal, almost classical portrait quality.
