"H20 #4", 6" X 4", acrylic on canvas, 2011

"H2O' painting series was developed for "Relish the Drift", a solo exhibition at The Merwin Gallery, Illinois Wesleyan University. "H2O" is a celebration of water as magical substance, its color, texture, viscosity and marriage with light. "H2O" was first conceived as a video. Once the video was complete I had a desire to create something physical, work inhabiting a presence beyond light. The painting series evolved as I wrestled with paint - a substance that is primarily water.
