The Language of Marks
Foundry Gallery, Gallery view, "The Languge of Marks" December 2020
The Language of Marks : December 4-27, 2020
I’m fascinated by marks. Runes and petroglyphs, the scripts of other languages, children's drawings—all these point to meanings I don’t quite understand. And yet marks can have an authority that everyday words and representational painting may lack. They are our most authentic, direct form of visual expression. My intent in this exhibit is to follow the mark, to layer and strip away and find the hidden meaning of each piece. It is painting as discovery.
