The struggle is real and the journey ever changing. Since my solo show journey is coming to an end, I wanted to try my hand in abstract painting. I had this idea of doing assembly line abstract pieces. The concept was to break down each layer into a single color of paint. Adding a new layer of paint after the previous one dries. What I had intended on happening was the paint would dry by the time I finished the first layer and then I would proceed to apply my second color.
What really happened was I painted the first layer and by the time I went to paint a second layer, the previous layer of paint was still drying. This made the process incredibly messy and practically ruined the painting experiment. I also misjudged how much available space I would have to place my panels while I began to work on the next piece. I learned a ton during this experience and have a better understanding of what to do from now on.
I fully intend to continue this process after I drop off my work at the Schmidt Art Center. I hope to immerse myself in abstract soon after the opening of my show BYOB: Bring Your Own Burgers. I see it as a way to decompress and relax from all the troubles and exhaustion I accrued while preparing fo this show. I need a break and part of that will be doing work where there is no expectation. Abstract paintings will be a form of escapism. At least, that is my intention.
