Work > Explorations and Observations

In the process of working on the acrylic paintings in the Identity and Viridiplantae series, my interest has been peaked by the highly textured areas within certain paintings. I'm looking closely at those particular areas in the Explorations and Observations series.

The paintings below are magnified areas of portions of existing paintings. I look at small highly textured areas of paintings and run them through the same process I used to create the original. I like the way they shift away from reality, lose structure and become more abstract.
