emotional topography (2005) This project began a series of ten paintings constructed for a show in Washington, D.C. The paintings were quite large in comparison to my other work, measuring 3’x 4’. The paintings were very minimal in content, focusing on deep textures and color variations found in the surface of each work. The paintings then became the background for a longer video by the same title. In the video, I use a black and white movie as a base while displaying the transitioning paintings of the original series.
