Text and Grid

    “Text and Grid” presents opportunities for experimentation on a flat surface with the purpose of engaging the viewer’s attention with tactile qualities that are specifically architectonic.
 
    Through collage and assemblage, I organize an embossed lattice pattern of canvas and prefabricated characters ‘text’ from re-purposed materials.  A gridded color scheme created from a combination of impasto and glazed painting techniques facilitates a camouflage of all imagery.
 
    The “Text and Grid” paintings have a long history that began during the nineteen eighties. I named them ‘Weave Paintings’ because the whole process of production reminded me of weaving threads on a loom.
