Works and Words

Small Works on Canvas (Rumpus Series)
Rumpus was begun as an experimental riff on "action in a square". Oddly, these paintings became the most narrative of all the works. The intimacy of the small scale and the repeating of squares encouraged the telling of tales. The loss of the rectangle with its relational impositions pushed a more playful facture.
