The Sunday Painter

 

The SUNDAY PAINTER is a WAY. 

A WAY of response that is informed by location, political environment, and the collecting and filtering of information. 

A WAY of flat image-making. Images created in bunker-like studios, placed in multiple locations, and made in response to current surroundings.

Mode of working: EARTH VIEW.

"BIG" PAINTING (Studio) 

LOCATION:
Brooklyn, NY

The smallest of all the studios, the space’s physical constraints only allowed for work on one painting at a time, which inspired a slower, focused, more meticulous process. Written and visual cataloging were part of the daily routine.
