I began this series of small abstract paintings while teaching at the MAQ Museo de Arte in Queretaro, Mexico.
I started a collection of different size cards announcing art openings from all the different cultural centers, museums and art galleries, both in Queretaro and San Miguel Allende area. I accumulated hundreds over a five year period and they were every where around my studio
tables and I began using them as palettes where I would mix colors when painting.
After a while amazing interesting and provocative images from accidents, drips, smears, brush strokes,collage ,mono printing and color transfers...that began to interest me tremendously. I saw a great potential and venue for me to move away from my minimalist work to a more spontaneous and improvisational approach.
At this point they are Untitled pieces and I think I will Not title them. I want the viewer to finish the piece to interact and be more involved with the image ,rather than have a title that in many cases has nothing to do with the work. Titles are very arbitrary. As I find many people spend their time looking for the preconceived wording in titles in the paintings instead of seeing ,feeling and allowing their subconscious to get involved in the deeper meaning of a work.
