With the discipline imposed by “3×3,” I chose HAIR as a subject, hoping to better understand and communicate about a feature that has immense cultural significance. The paintings are acrylic, rectangular, and colorful. As the texture of the work became more important, I added sheep skin, false eyelashes, fishing worms, found trash, post its, and other debris. The paint was applied with brushes, palette knives, paint scrapers, drying racks, and hair.
Thank you to Allison Miller and all the friends in “3×3” for the gift of such well considered, generous criticism.
