These paintings are an attempt to portray time and three-dimensional space on a two-dimensional surface. The canvases are not smaller pieces attached to each other, but are single large pieces of canvas stretched over a shaped frame. These paintings are usually made from photographic studies and take weeks or months to build and paint.
I developed this style of painting as a direct response to David Hockney's photocollages. These paintings are not a copy of the style, but an expansion of the concept. Rather than being pictures pasted onto a rectangular board like Hockney's pieces, these assemblies float in space without a frame, and have no point of reference aside from the wall upon which they hang.
