Word fragments fly in vaporous clouds over an austere urban landscape.
"Untitled (Trees)", 2018, acrylic and cut paper on MDF panel, 12 x 12 inches (30 x 30 cm).
Inspired by the hilly landscapes around my home, especially a small copse of angular, straight, young trees near my house. Over a freely-brushed acrylic background, painted paper (newspaper, kraft paper, and maps) is torn or cut and pasted into place to create the forms.
Watercolor enlarged and printed onto a canvas for an exhibition at Cafe de Concert in Oslo in the fall of 2017
