Fishing for Water

Such a paradox - feeling compelled to paint in a fluid manner, yet being physically surrounded by an atmosphere infused with dryness and stillness. Where does illusion begin and end?

The reveal of grain in every slice of wood differs. As a ground for paint, it prompts me to define and isolate shapes that in turn expand the notion of how objects occupy space, or how objects can become space. A new series of work evolves from the ground up.
