The space between, within a larger place. Details from the smells, colors, and textures. Parts are lost.
A fleeting shadow heavier than the object or person that casts it. A pause in the moment. Hesitation from Point A to B.
Being in or around an architectural environment, certain things leave an impression on me. It can be the grand scale of a building or the small moments in surface detail of the concrete.
In a painting, I recreate that mood with the texture, light and shapes associated with memory.
During the process of searching for that combination of colors forms and edges that deliver a representation of that sensation, I use many tools. Sketches and collage help clarify the overall direction when I start. Once I jump in, I'm improvising, trying different things that give me and knee jerk reaction as to whether they work.
