The White Columns Curated Artist Registry is an online catalog of digital images documenting the work of artists who are not affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City. Each submission is reviewed by our curatorial staff; in order to be considered for the registry, one must submit work digitally via this website.
In this body of work the timing of events is both the subject matter and the process. Though not painted directly from any single source, each piece contains elements derived from disparate images and ideas I encounter — from the wave signals of an echocardiogram to ads posted on social media. Using concrete trowels, large knives and rubber squeegees, I swirl, drag and scrape acrylic paint in taped-off sections on the canvas. Each section progresses at a different rate and accumulates its own particular history of marks and textures. And like events in life, these parts may relate to or interrupt each other. The resulting painting hints at the timing of external events while revealing the timeline of its own creation.
