Improv Song

This acrylic on plywood diptych recognizes the duplicity of form accentuated and contained within the woodgrain of two separate prefabricated boards.

Also, I’m just playing around with woodgrain and gradients in hopes of discovering something new. What I found was my process in making images is a lot like how I write music. First you improvise and make stuff up until you hear something cool by jamming. Then, you refine that idea by getting rid of the stuff that doesn’t work and building on the stuff that does. Now you have a song.
