These are new works on paper I've just finished. The project began as a "tabula rasa", in which I would complete a collage, then paint over it, obliterating the image, and lastly add a final layer to coax something out of the background.
They were conceived as band posters for a bar in a decrepit alley behind an ancient cathedral.
I place them on the street, some in alleyways, some outside of a club, or by an old railroad trestle, and photographed them in each of these settings.
The energetic history of each of these locations interacts vividly with the works. This is a fundamental idea that comes out of my curatorial projects, that of art existing in real world contexts.
