BFA, Ohio University, 1971
The majority of what I paint are metal or plastic parts found on the roadways that have fallen off cars, trucks, buses. These parts have lain on the road for months and are in various states of decay/corrosion. Many of the objects have been beaten and flattened by the pounding of the constant stream of civilization as it continues on its way.
My precisely painted patterns contrast with the distressed nature and irregularity of the objects themselves. The pieces usually have a three dimensional or sculptural quality to them so that, although much of the work is wall hung, they do not lay flat.
