The image itself bespeaks nothing less than a complete visual autonomy – can be looked at as a unravelled and untwisted maze of free lines. Each compartment that the lines make upon intersecting is filled alternatively with the fleshy background color or its slathered sienna and tan compliment. In places the lines act as boundaries, containing the paint forms. In others they ignore their surroundings completely, meandering through the different terrains unaware, or unobservant of their surroundings. At some places we see traces of past line through the foundation background hues. Forgotten in places, half-excavate in others, these hints of some type of underlying mesh tell of a history in the work, a past that the artist wants us to be aware of, but not too familiar with.
