Tumbling Forward

This painting is part of a larger series about working with what you have. The limited palette is purposeful. Most of my paintings start with the Black. I love the Black. Chalkboard paint, a heavy texture and drip that I adore. I add color, washing it over the top. I paint around, over just a little. I make the Black a beautiful part of a larger whole, absorbed into something bigger, with color, light and soul.

I am a survivor. Like many others, I’ve had to overcome. The trauma was there before my memory began recording. The Black is Me. It is everyone who has ever gotten to the other side. The Black is volcanic ash that now supports new life. The Black is a forest fire, burnt ground that is now fertile for discovery. They are the past. I decide what comes next. I will decide what color. I will add glitter and varnish on top of the past. I will make the future.

Where it's been: new work, currently pending exhibition
