Present Memory : An Untitled Painting

Aided by the fog of memory that overtakes our selective mental pictures and finally shapes them, this untitled painting, mixed with collage elements, to the best of my recollection represents the transition from many of my still-life paintings that contain fabric samples to my recent black & white paintings. The intrusion of "reality," represented by the collage elements, act as textural jabs that remind the eye of the inherent artifice of painting and the messy serendipity that chance meetings of any kind suggest.

I've always been fond of this piece. Seemingly devoid of meaning, it simply IS...and that seems to be enough,
