This piece—Floor, Wall, Ceiling (Figure), 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, Floor, Wall, Ceiling (Figure), 2021, expands on the scale and logic of the older work. The sculptural textures on the top cast-painting component 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 central wood component has dark vertical strip that acts as an extension/continuation of the large texture of the cast piece. The title Floor, Wall, Ceiling refers to a flattening of architecture into a single plane. Figure refers to the body-sized proportions of the artwork, but also to the aforementioned anthropomorphic stripe and the decorative nature of the wood grain itself (known as figured wood).
