Pucker up

August 27, 2015

These works are about impressions, as opposed to locations, of Provincetown. A sort of semi-abstraction french kissing illustration. The recognizable elements of any realism has been cast off to color, line, and shape. Loose subjective forms suggest a hurried pace, long waits, and chance encounters. The use of mixed media (acrylic, oil, charcoal, oil stick, pencil on canvas) serves as a crucial representational element to convey the complex diversity of the town by being both harmonious and discordant. There are many imperfections  – just like those that constitute the soul of any village at the end of the road.
