The Revisionist Geometry series involved scraping down and reinventing a series of decade old paintings. These older works contained my earliest attempts at combining geometric forms with painterly process.
As I scraped the panels down, the weathered surfaces and individual layers that emerged began to tell the story of their making, serving almost as time capsules of my life. I saw the color choices, brushstrokes, and experimental approaches that had captivated me ten years ago. Memories of the experiences that had fueled that work came flooding back, merged now with thoughts of the present. I went back into these paintings to reactivate them and, quite literally, add another layer to the story.
Some changed only incrementally and some became completely unrecognizable in the end. These paintings are a reflection on time, change, and reinvention. They are about the compelling process of continually pushing forward in the studio, a microcosm of life.
