macro-mini

This show consists of two parts.  The first part is a series of new paintings in the Macrocosm series.  Scientific images gathered by satellites are rendered in layers of glossy acrylic.  The new pieces are all miniature versions of earlier paintings: mini hurricane (2002) is 16 x 18; Hurricane (2001) is 72 x 78.  Repeating the same motif at very different scales reveals interesting things about the way the flowing qualities of fluid paint depict the dynamic structures of immense natural phenomena on the scale of planets and galaxies.

The second part of the show consists of paintings and drawings from earlier series, which in retrospect could be called Microcosm.  Two series of large drawings are represented.  In both, pours and drips are used to create forms which are then embellished with pencil to suggest organic forms of indeterminate scale.  In the White on White latex drawings, liquid latex is poured on paper, then removed after it dries, leaving only a very faint impression.  In the mylar drawings, acrylic paint is poured and spattered onto mylar, but then washed off before it has a chance to fully dry.

On a personal level, this show represents my first visit back to Prague since living and studying there from 1993 to 1996.  I am pleased to have the opportunity to return and show my work.
