2015-2017. The work is made from a method I developed that allows the underside of the paint layer to be shown as the outward surface. The viewable surface is identical to peeling the entire paint layer off, and then flipping it over. I begin by painting on a special laminated film, noting that the first marks I make will be the topmost “foreground”, while the last marks become the most covered up “background”.. I scrape the paint off, wipe it away, cover it up again and pulverize brushes through the layers.Once it’s ready I carefully peel off the film. This results in a painting with a smooth glossy surface. This approach opens up a way to expose the bones of the process of painting itself- Mistakes and do-overs, erasures and repaints, scratching away the paint, smudging it off with turpentine, things that happen within the painting procedure which are usually covered up, are all scrutinizingly visible. The work then creates a dialog about the anatomy of abstract painting, by literally providing this new perspective.
