Second Nature is a celebration of the beauty and essentialness of water and an homage to creative practice. The exhibition features abstract seascape paintings on canvas, linen, and collage on paper.
Exercising the tradition of recording field drawings from the shores of Puget Sound has brought me closer to my visual language. Familiar like writing, free flowing strokes of masking fluid spill from my brush to establish spatial relationships and rhythm. The fluid simultaneously masks, by chance, other areas to reveal an evolution of painted strata beneath.
Therapeutic and mindful, my practice serves as catharsis for countering orderly tendencies with disruptive processes, and poses challenges of staying committed while letting go of predetermined outcomes.
