Works on Paper

Paper is alive. It pulses with energy and capriciousness. (Maybe consciousness. I don’t know.) It receives paint. It rejects paint. Paper has a mind of its own.  

 

When you put paint on paper, you don’t really know what will happen. It’s an existential act of faith, as are most artistic ventures. What you hope will happen doesn’t materialize. But the accidents, the glorious accidents, are a sight to behold.

 

Sometimes I barely touch the paper with my brush, and suddenly a luminous color awakens against the white paper. I’m surprised. I’m happy. At other times I push my brush into the paper, almost grinding it into the texture of the surface, bristles flaying outward as if being punished for some undisclosed transgression, and then the paint spreads out in an oily, wondrous, beautiful way. 

 

Unction. Unctious. Unctionated. Unctionating. 

 

Over the past year I’ve been working almost exclusively with paper. I have no explanation other than to say that I like it. Paint and paper. Paper and paint. 

 

I’m happy to present this spring exhibition of paper paintings. I’ve titled the exhibition: “When Thin Places Meet.” I’m interested in how so much of life is shaped by one thing barely touching another thing. The thin places. This comes close to that or that comes close to this, and in so doing our lives are forever changed. 

 

Enjoy.
