After some time away from the studio, I started back up when I took a month-long residency at Byrdcliffe Arts Colony in Woodstock. The result included these paintings. The palette is pared down to avoid the distraction of color. Each piece is composed of dark forms, land masses perhaps, set against a textured white surface. The masses float off to the sides, presenting a cleared space from which to start again.
