Description: This print, Multiple.20, is an example of the “mechanical abstractions” I paint by hand on paper or canvas. I improvise each composition using imaginary mechanical forms that evolve as the piece progresses. Inspired by technology and engineering as well as formal abstraction, I use a personal vocabulary of imagined rivets, support structures and counter-weights to “build” each piece. Free from actual function or specific identity, each completed composition is left open to interpretation for each viewer.
