FraK•ture is the latest artwork in a series of sculptures and paintings titled, Above Ground, Beneath the Surface. In this series of work I try to expose certain attributes in a two-dimensional and a three dimensional state that explore ideas of discontinuity, fragility, and geographical stress. In this current installation, I merge the surface of paint (as an actual object) into a state that is morphing from liquid to solid and then separating. The paint is transformed from a general brushstroke to an idealized landscape displacing our sense of mark. The medium (paint) is left as an object; remnant of its former state. Paint is then torn from its usual connotations, being on canvas or construct, thereby allowing the media to discover its current environment and viewer to engage in the same experience.
