Each painting in this series presents an image underscored by a voice revealed through text positioned on a reserved section of unpainted canvas. Texts are composed as fragments of imaginary documents or incomplete narratives. The initial idea was to expose the canvas as both a literal and a metaphorical entity. Its similarity to writing paper seemed a potent space to explore.
As the series evolved, the subjects to which my mind gravitated began to insinuate disguise, pretense and other devices employed in the pursuit of anonymity, solitude or self-preservation. The series now reflects a conscious choice to follow this trend.
