Green Hatchet


Mixed media on canvas, 50″x50″, 2013


About this piece:
This painting was done during a week long residency at VCCA (Virginia Center for the Creative Arts). I was working in a huge studio and all that space really made it’s way into my paintings. I’ve always considered space and a feeling of lightness and depth when painting but at VCCA I was able to push that even farther. Here I’m playing with that transparent, milky space and flattened shapes or objects…seeing how they might inhabit the same landscape.
