Imaginary Landscapes

This series was initially developed from reworking “failed” neurology paintings. I covered them with thinned gesso to make a new surface, which I then blotted with paper towels. As I studied the results I began to visualize imaginary floating worlds that I further enhanced with superimposed marks drawn with archival ink. Later I deliberately prepared an under-painting, applied gesso blotting, followed by ink drawing to reveal the contours of the new imaginary landscapes.
