The work signifies a lack of humanistic sensibility amidst the creation of a phenomenological scene through the selective, albeit brutal, concealing or depletion of particular elements of the picture plane. Expressive in its totality, the series of paintings illustrates a layering of mediums without regards to proper usage of materiality to create a synthetic yet animate scene. Through abstraction the shapes appear to be uncannily familiar. However, the destruction of certain forms reveals a thoughtful skepticism about what can qualify as a painting. “Wiping out” elements of the composition create a sense of two different planes or even “worlds”. Perhaps the production of these primordial events is able to merge both the irrational and the rational.
