Victory over the Moon

 

Completed over the same number of days, these seven works, collectively entitled Victory over the Moon, are meant to explore a re-imagining of utility and the potential to garner use from the very act, or non-act, of disuse. All of these works are made from latex and acrylic paints which have unintentionally or intentionally been allowed to dry and harden past the point of possible use for their original purpose. The sticky, often chunky texture of the paint, lends itself to the documentary feel of the final canvas surface. The paint, which has been robbed of it’s ability to lay flat and disguise the hand of the artist, instead chronicles every touch, every movement.
