Three

I went off on a bit of a tangent and did these small square 24" x 24" paintings just using minimal color. I tried to work on them all together and imagined them all hanging in one group. I wanted to see how simple I could get them so from across the room they looked interesting and graphic but then upon closer examination the texture and the subtle markings would reveal themselves.

I write or scratch words in my pictures which are often metaphorical or mean nothing at all but they do give the "idea" of communication even though it is vague. A word is so specific and actually really powerful so I tend to use ones that are obtuse or diluted by an overlay of texture or even upside down or backwards.

Love the mix of pattern and imagery. I think the 3 work very strongly together. I also like the sequence you've put them in -- going from the small stripes, to larger stripes, then to the grid. Very nice.

I love your black and white pieces and your description of how and why you try to put vague symbols of language in them.
