This piece—Picture Window, 2021—is a new reinterpretation of a work from my last show in New York (Floor, Wall, Ceiling, 2011/2019). The older piece was realized from a discarded brass work from 2011. The brass piece was cut in half and subsequently reconstituted, enlarged and elongated with wood and MDF replacement parts. The result was a mash-up of gestural, subjective brushwork and a more refined, modular minimalist configuration. The new work, Picture Window, 2021, expands on the scale and logic of the older work. The cast-painting component of the triptych is now located in the middle of the composition. Its textures are more exaggerated, capturing collaged elements in addition to brushwork such as raw linen swatches and found chunks of dried lithography ink scraped from the studio floor. The three panels that comprise the piece share the same width but grow by 12” inches taller per panel from top to bottom. (12”, 24”, 36; total height 72”). The title, Picture Window, refers to an architectural component as did the older piece it departs from (Floor, Wall, Ceiling). A picture window is typical a large, central fixed pane of glass used to frame a view. In this artwork, the top and bottom adjoining MDF panels could be seen as auxiliary windows to the central “window” cast, or as the wall above and below.
