Entry Description:

A series of paintings that employ different means of dissection and reassembly of images. Painting as i understand it, is in many ways, a series of decisions and a constant process of making marks and subsequently responding to those marks. Robert Rauschenberg has said before that paintings are living, breathing things and I believe this to be true. While making these works, I have thought about the natural processes of removal and re-imagining of forms through the function of entropy, decay, death, birth and the manner in which we interpret pieces of information at once. With a couple of these paintings I have tried to bring these ideas about fragmentation in nature to apply to specific persons and simultaneously make an accurate portrait.
