The ground color refers back to the gessoed white base by abrading the surface and letting additional light filter through. This series has a more active base color that implies spacial context in addition to a tighter structure than previous series. The final layer of each work is the gestural ‘action’ layer- sometimes loose and fluid, creating a myriad of monochromatic tonal variations as well as thick impasto’. The layering is a slow process of building the presence of light by subtracting pigment and the addition of multiple layers of white vinyl emulsion paint that has a reflective quality. The final duo-chromatic painting allows for the interpretation of the paintings process and history by observation of the layers.
