New work

  This work is fresh off the presses. I began both of these paintings in late January and early February. I was struck by the idea of the tear as an interruption or interloper and played around with incorporating it into the work. I was also able to transform the sail stitching on the first piece by using it to tie french knots. The size of the thread makes the resulting bundles look like tightly wound metal wire.
