THE EXCAVATION SET
A group of pattern-field paintings, having an initiating basis, reference and in homage to a painting by William DeKooning called “Excavation” located at the Art Institute of Chicago. All are oils on canvas, 60 x 84 inches to 46 x 55 inches, from 2012 - 2015. The action painting of DeKooning in these pieces has been reinterpreted into dense textures of overlaying images. All are titled “Re-excavation,” numbered and subtitled.
