    Art Description:

    "Last Train to Brown Town" is an action painting improvised in a single session. The canvas was first stained or “foxed” with coffee. The gestures and marks move the composition from left to right in a continuity not intended to describe a train but rather its locomotion. In this case "Brown Town" refers to seasonal depression and the rigor of the brushwork is meant as a declaration of "moving through". The painting avers, “No more will I be held down in the static grip of doubt, I’m moving on!" The canvas is beautifully framed in a semi-ornate moulding which quotes the treatment of older European art, contrasting and complimenting its very contemporary sensibility.


    Medium Used: Oil on Canvas

    A body of work should not be a cadaver evidencing life that was but rather the flash-point for life which ignites anew on each renewed encounter.
