[March 2017] Tempera paint on paper. Since a painting retreat in March 2017 on the remote island of Molokai, Hawaii, I have engaged in a series of process paintings, using tempera, gouache, and watercolor paints on paper. It was strange to find myself picking up paints again, since I had abandoned the medium in the early 1990s. In contrast to my more conceptual work in photography, video, and text-based images, these paintings are intuitively driven, and don't start out from a plan or agenda. They connect me to my emotional imagination rather than my conceptual imagination. The paintings are a form of meditation, a contemplative responsiveness to the energy in the body/mind and on the paper. Selected process paintings with details are shown throughout the website, identified by the place where I made them.
