Having trained as a painter - and having lost access to a studio - painting became a distant act. In order to “relearn” how to paint and reinvigorate my painting practice, I set up a series of parameters in the Summer of 2016 to help make executing this series of paintings more tangible.
All of the paintings are made on mass-produced canvases, aligned vertically and reuse leftover or discarded acrylic paint from students in my 6-8th grade classroom. I create the works in a production-line-like setting repeating the same gimmicks of mark-making during a session.
The series will end when 100 paintings are completed.
