Random Residuals

A few years ago I began a series of works that moved away from representation and into spaces around the figures. They introduced themselves to me as Random Residuals
Random Residuals began as a recycling project ancillary to the "real work". Responding to the paint at hand in the moment became an empowering practice creating new relationships between, myself, the artist and the paint. From the beginning I determined that no paint brushes would be used so the paint had to move in unfamiliar ways.
The Random Residual process brought a new discovery every day beginning at the end of the day when all the paint that remained on the palette would be used on a new work that began and ended as the paint dried. 
As snow piles up in the frozen landscape outside the door the experimentation that was a large part of the project seems ready to reappear.
