Screenworks

Screenworks emphasize the 3-D quality of paint by freeing the impasto on a porous surface. The opaque application of paint stakes a claim as a solid material casting a shadow on the surface behind it. The paint has valid dimension instead of being used to create the illusion of 3-D space. The screen’s surface also offers interesting options. For example, pushing paint through the mesh introduces textural qualities and possibilities; or, painting only the mesh creates transparent imagery and playful give-and-take between surfaces.
