I am currently working on multiple series of small works I am calling “Parts of Speech”. These new works are relief “sculpture paintings”. The individual pieces are laser cut into a piece of wood as if contained in their own frame and looking into a painting of cut out forms. The pieces are then painted using thin layers of oil and the “frames” have added bits of pattern that is glazed back as if in the distance. The back of each piece is mounted and painted a fluorescent color to create a back lit effect. Each suite is composed to hang together although every piece can stand alone.
The entire body of work will be photographed when finished – look for it in early fall.
