This series of paintings began with materials. I dropped a clear plastic painters-palette one day, and it landed upside down. I was struck by the beauty of the layers of color showing through from the water-like surface. I said to myself, “This should be developed, not thrown away.”
A depiction of icy water would bring the best out of these materials, so I spent the winter staring at the Occoquan river near my home. I tested different materials to simulate the ice and developed a recipe for paint that mimicked cracked surfaces. It took much experimentation to make that happen. Materials inspire me to innovate, and these materials inspired me to create new techniques.
