Acrylic paint, acrylic gouache. Subject/Description
Sketchbooking is a vital part of my personal artistic practice. I frequently chronicle my life experiences (often including dreams) in notes and sketches as I move through the pages without the structure of theme or subject. I approached this project as an opportunity to reconsider the familiar medium of a sketchbook as final work. Without building too rigid a framework, I could allow my process of automatic painting to fill each spread as I worked through the book. This sketchbook, created for the Moleskine Foundation, represents a path to understanding and healing of the self. For me, painting is a meditative practice and a time to reflect - my work reveals more than I can identify through conscious observation. Archival Fund
