The Painted Way series calls attention to the “drawings” and “paintings” that surround us in the built environment. For example, bare winter tree branches sketch expressive and nuanced linework against the moody, wet dullness of city skies in winter. Once attuned to this elegant ordinariness – distilled through the use of color – the diversity and intricacy of previously unremarked-upon views become accessible everywhere. “Paintings” populate the streets themselves: liquid tar brushed along the tracery of cracked asphalt surfaces echoes Brice Marden’s paintings and Sol LeWitt’s aquatints. I distill these automatic yet expressive compositions by photographing the roadway from behind the wheel of my car, and then translate the photos into brushed compositions that, once again, test the distinctions of flatness and depth, expressive abstraction and straight description.
