This painting of the aforementioned WHITEWOOD SERIES stands out for its simplicity. There is only one thin layer of paint applied, no margins, no gradations in color. Paint and wood and nothing more. In addition, the frame itself is reduced, there are only two framing pieces rather than the usual four. This gives the work a physical lightness unlike the others, which in turn informs the work. This particular shade of white runs throughout my work, and is what I refer to as a “main sur le front dans un geste d’appaisement”, a hand on the forehead in a soothing gesture. It is the color that bandages and allays suffering.
