della terra: of the earth.
In this series I am responding to surfaces altered by time; old walls, ancient frescos, the landscape itself, aged and eroded.
In each painting I work toward a unique topography, created by layers of paint, natural pigments, graphite, ink and other mark making applied, then selectively scraped off and excavated to reveal layers beneath. The process is repeated until the right atmosphere is created and the painting is resolved. The residual fragments of color which emerge suggest a story of change, and mark the history of the painting's creation over time.
