FRAUENAU PAINTINGS

Paintings from Bild-Werk artists' retreat in Frauenau, Germany, 2004



In this series, created in a small town in the Bavarian forest, I was drawing on distant memories of intensely experienced places and situations-- memories that are not clear like snapshots but potent aggregates of temperature, smell, and light. Formally, they address space and varieties of white as both possibility and substance. The use of color is intended to be viscerally evocative rather than literally representative. Because these paintings were created simultaneously over the course of one week of intense output, each of the twenty-four pieces is a member of one body like mushrooms or aspens.
