PAINTING

The graffiti tag (a.k.a. handstyle tag) comes from an interest in the historical power of signatures in terms of ownership and identity.

In 2003, I captured a tag from a train in the neighborhood. Since, this singular mark has been rearranged, enlarged, reduced, cut, and taped the back together. By using the same mark, for years on end, revisitation  looks for patterns in history.

The materiality of the paintings includes linen sourced for its construct, color and weight. The pigments are rare and natural earth minerals. Often what was once available is no longer. Preparation resembles a domestic kitchen scene were colors are arranged in handmade clay jars & bowls made for this purpose. Then, the earth pigments are mixed, folded and blended.
