My recent paintings focus on suburban houses and commercial structures captured in a state of partial construction. These works explore the building process and, in them, find a metaphor for the activity of painting. My intention is to draw a connection between the construction of a building out of raw materials (lumber, steel and concrete) and the construction of a picture out of raw materials (paint, canvas, wood). My compositions are informed both by three-dimensional architectural space and by the pictorial "space" of 20th-century Modernist painting. The generic forms of suburban architecture provide a convenient framework through which I explore the basic structures and issues of geometric abstraction, stripes, grids, flatness vs. depth, color relativity and so forth. This painting, Site, struck me as an ideal candidate for a print edition because, on the most literal level, the image is about the reproduction of tract housing.
