Connections: old walls and random marks

When traveling, I’m always engaged by old walls: their weathered surfaces, the random marks of passersby, the layers of disintegrating color. Like a mysterious palimpsest, they have an earned patina that speaks a narrative history of time, revealing presence and suggesting absence. My approach to painting incorporates the building of a surface in a similar manner with additions and erosions, intuitive mark, and asemic writing.  These photos have been taken in many parts of the world. Even when I can’t speak the language, I feel instinctually that I understand the visual communication expressed in these surfaces.
