About the Work
When in the room with my paintings, you will smell the paint first. The surface of the painting likewise asserts itself when in its presence. Colors and color combinations can never be photographed the same way that our eyes see the color IRL, and I make use of this relativity. A painting, which historically has been a virtual experience (a window), can be decidedly phenomenological today, when almost anything can be experienced virtually. The paintings are not without illusion: the presence of collage is entirely fictive. Paint is built up against masked edges, juxtaposing with sprayed acrylic paint absorbed into the canvas. There is a sequence within the paintings from the back forward, and there’s also a shallow depth as a result of layering ropy lines of impasto paint over sprayed raw canvas. The effect feels like the various elements of the painting are moving across a surface.

All of our frames are made from sustainably sourced engineered hardwood that is manufactured in the USA. Frames are available in Black or White Matte and Walnut.
Prints are hinged to a conservation quality, acid-free and lignin-free Cellulose matboard, using acid-free polyethylene cloth tape. Each mat’s surface paper is fade and bleed resistant and is attached to a conversation quality foam-core board. Some of our work (typically those pieces with a deckled edge) is floated on the matboard with spacers to separate the artwork from the glazing.
We use museum quality .060 mm plexiglass to frame your work. It blocks 82-85% of UV rays to prevent color fading from exposure to light, protecting your art for years to come.
Our White and Black frames have a ⅞” wide flat face and are 15/16” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
