Title Surface image self
Date 1996-06
Description The work in my Master of Fine Arts show consists of seven large oil paintings on a paper structure with collage, twelve mixed-media prints, and three mixed-media drawings. I have moved away from making art based on perceptual experience of the environment toward work that derives from my personal experiences as a painter, woman, mother, and wife of a military man. The work is autobiographical, but it is not necessary that the viewer understand my particular motivations. I want the paintings to suggest human experience and remain open to multiple interpretations. My interest in a texturally rich surface that xploits the plasticity of paint led to collage elements and thick layers of paint. I strive to produce work that is gestural, maintains a sense of immediacy, and allows the viewer to see the development of the mark making. Since my painting process is intuitive, I often define, obliterate, and redefine an image several times over trying to reach that goal.
