Iconscape 2 (for Adam)


While at the Elaine de Kooning House residency, I hope to also honor and continue creating paintings stemming from the ideology of her Abstract Expressionist circle, abstract works I call Iconscapes, a continuation of my own painterly practice that I have created and exhibited my whole career since college. The paintings hope to bring about dream-like worlds culled from the unconscious in a more renaissance visual space than the works of such artists as Gorky (without fully illustrating figurative elements, like in the works by Dali).
