Paintings 2019

After completing my 2018 photographic series Heir, I began looking for ways to continue to develop the textural, non-figurative aesthetic which marked that body of work. In early 2019, with a desire to move beyond the medium of photography, I began painting for the first time in nearly 15 years.

The following paintings from that year, presented in reverse chronological order, are concerned primarily with texture and mark making. Each is intended to be complete in and of itself, with little to no further meaning or reference attached.
