These is an almost seductive violence to the aggressive handling of paint in this untitled work, created back in 2013. The thick impasto surface offers densely twisting brushstrokes that ultimately streak out to the outermost edges of the picture plane, in scratched blue-green swaths. The more concentrated central chunks of pigment appear to be arranged as abstract facial features- the red “lips” anchoring the less figural forms. But the longer I contemplate any representation, the darker pieces dissolve into pure painterly expression. Scale isn’t indicated on this particular piece, and I image the impact of the physicality would depend largely on whether the painting allowed for intimate viewing on a smaller scale, or yet a still more forceful presence.
