Overview

10 cut-out paintings, Oil, Ink, Pencil on Paper
6 cut-out paintings, Oil, Ink, Pencil on Drywall
Installation: Aluminum Frame
The paintings of “Walls of Making” are done in a studio set up to literally paint in three dimensions. To conclude the layering of the painting process, certain areas are cut out following a specific logic.

Goals

The cut outs transmit the inner painting to the outside surface as initiations for a second painting on the other, now of double-sided, free-standing drywall panels as folded paintings.
The painting’s qualities as an object in space are enhanced by the cuts and their negative spaces. Installed in the aluminum framework colors and marks are tangible elements in our three-dimensional space reaching beyond the limits of the painted plane into the physical space. The color spaces on the picture plane are merged with the architectural space as its context.
