Spray Paintings

These works are connected to my digital drawings and explorations of how the aesthetics of data visualization and infographics are impacting modern visual culture and methods of making paintings.

My wax layered paintings are "slow" painting that takes a long time to dry in between applications of deliberate layers. Moving quickly, working with spray paint has been a surprising way to make something happen in the studio and create a balanced momentum.

The larger works have layers of spray and impasto oil marks as a manner of visual contrapunctus (a musical term meaning texture resulting from the combining of individual melodic lines). 

The little spray paintings that have pale veils of colour that float over and under near fluorescent hues that difficult to reproduce in photography.
