The ongoing Revisionist Geometry series involves scraping down and reinventing a decade old body of work. These older paintings contain my earliest attempts at combining geometric forms with an intuitive, painterly process.
As I scrape the panels down, the weathered surfaces and individual layers that emerge begin to tell the story of their making, serving almost as time capsules of my life. I see the color choices, brushstrokes, and experimental approaches that captivated me ten years ago. Memories of the experiences that fueled that work come flooding back, merged now with thoughts of the present. I am going back into these paintings to reactivate them and, quite literally, add another layer to the story.
The altered work becomes 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.
