The painting exemplifies time and the presence of my hand in concert with painting tools and liquid paint. The graphite paint application varies from sheer to opaque and the paintings appearance changes as the light in the room changes. It embodies impermanence, a reminder that all is ever changing. The painting is unintentionally informed by views of the ever-changing patterns of water currents and clouds I observe out my studio window overlooking the East River. A ground layer of interference paints shift the colors the viewer sees, making the artwork dynamic; reminding us life is always changing. Counter to what the viewer sees, the interference pigments are colorless; it is their ability to bend light that causes a viewer to perceive a color that’s not really there.
