In 2020, I began experimenting with “Disintegrations” – paintings built from fabric quilts that contain clothing & related items, along with a top layer of paint / graffiti / destruction. My goal was to build a “vocabulary” with the paint – to see how much paint the work wanted – to see how much the underlying fabric wanted to be obliterated – to see where the work demanded I take it. I made 20 – 30 relatively small works before I learned what the work needed and what made me happy. Many of these early works are in permanent collections – in Madison, Michigan & France.
