Torn Asunder

 

These works are formed by the partially spontaneous act of tearing away the plastic factory wrapping from a pre-made canvas. The remainder of the plastic is left on and painted over, then fully removed. In some cases, the unaffected area is then also painted, independent from the original area of focus. They attempt to bring light to the question of instinctual association of form and depiction with a material object, given their somewhat contrived, but mostly unplanned, arbitrary compositions.
