paleomeander 6

This painting, along with others from the Meanders and Paleomeanders series, will be exhibited during October 2012 at Artmarket Provincetown, Provincetown, MA.  I am working steadily on completing four new pieces for the series.  All of the works are mixed media-- using wire, thread, fiberglass screen, and pencil along with oil and metallic paints.  They range in size from 10" x 10" to 40" x 40", and are mostly on paper.

The series envisions imaginary landscapes with the history of evolving river systems made visible on the land surface.  The pieces are built in many layers and are dependant on the ways that the successive layers of paint and other materials interact-- quite akin to how such landscapes would be formed in the natural world.
