Painting: Adventures in a Marginal Aesthetic


This project explores how a relationship between consonance and dissonance can operate as a dynamic interplay that is constantly at work during the process of painting. It also explores how this interaction operates as a constantly shifting aesthetic territory that is central to the life of my practice. This comes from questioning how my decision-making processes accommodate incongruent qualities that work together to somehow open up possibilities. The project looks at the relationship between a deeply rooted sense of order, the disruptive qualities that are continually emerging in the painting, and how this dynamic is used positively in the art to prevent the work from falling into a passive state of resolution
