I like to invent images or symbols in which the viewer senses an abstract concept. In this painting, I connect shapes, colors, textures and movement to the idea of sorting and sifting information. I painted a cloth, sack-like container to serve as a gate-keeping sieve, saving the likable bits of information and throwing the rest away.
During the process of making and building the forms, I allowed the paint mixture to separate thus portraying subtleties and nuances so typical of complex information. Often in the process of painting, I come to realize that the painting knows more than I do. I try to watch, listen and pay attention to it.
