Tree's Triptych (all three are on exhibit) 8x4.5' solid core doors with hardware
The doors are my original works in in the gestural style, thrown and splattered paint. I was attempting to discover what Pollock was trying to express using this technique. I still have no idea Pollock's reasoning but after spending a solid week working on these doors from sun up to sun set, I was hooked. What appeared simple, was terribly difficult; many times these were 'hosed' down because they weren't 'right', though I couldn't possible express what that meant. I believe it is a subconscious view that determines 'right'. The Doors are the first paintings of this style, today I am more of an impressionist than an abstructionist but I remember to come back to these when I find I am working far too close to realism. It is the essence, not the image, I try to capture. These doors are a perfect example of that.
