Interior Prairiescapes Series II: The Idea of Prairie,
Mark-making, Color, and Composition
2004 SOLD OUT
|The beginning for this show of work came from the ending of
the last. At the tale end of preparing for the Grand Detour show
I pulled out a set of Japanese calligraphy brushes I had on my
shelf for well over a decade. They sat there unused I suppose
out of a sort of fear or pedestal I had put them on. Perhaps I
just didn't know what to do with them. Anyway, out they came
and I started to lay down marks of acrylic color on panel. It
fascinated, energized and excited me. It was fluid. The
process of creating them has everything to do with mediation,
reflection on prairie, mark making, color, and composition.
From those concentrations came the
grouping here today.
