Dreams of the Night Sleeper

ihet – november/december 2018 – issue 236

 During one of my recent fits of organization, I pulled out several never completed canvasses. Originally these two were intended for exhibition at Perimeter Gallery, Chicago and for reasons that now escape me, their development was problematic, the paintings weren’t finished, and didn’t end up being shown. After, I put them aside and began a new group of work. Revisiting these artifacts of creative effort, their intent is reimagined, guided by the instruments of memory and experience. A dilemma resolved. A quiet and measured chronicle woven by the force of time.

      The pragmatic affair # 239                Desire’s mnemonic memoir #233

Transformation is the heart of it. It’s the gentle tug, becoming a push then a shove. A feeling of urgency driving the narrative forward.

The  cartography of  my visual language is informed by the tangled and knotted rhythms of nature. An exploration into the fabric of remembrance. The evolution of change. The reordering of perception.

Then there’s the bits and pieces. In these instances harvested from my own manipulations. An orange tree remnant from the garden, on an image of trees in Superstition Mountains, (assembled from multiple inkjet prints), and photographed.
