I spent part of the day photographing my Echolalia series – twenty-four 18″ x 18″ paintings I created in 2005.
I began these oil and collage paintings by gluing rough textured canvas to the stretched canvas then applying gesso to the surface. I used pencil to draw the composition – I used two different stencils (I drew) of cats as well as a ruler to create the geometric field.
I always draw thumbnail sketches before I begin the actual paintings to map out the direction of the series. I used chalkboard paint in both black and green, and oil paint. Then I added the collage items, which included text, coins, starfish, ribbon and wooden toys.
A rune is a mystery and echo alludes to the repetition of the devices.
You can see more of these works – I uploaded the entire series – in the portfolio section of my website. They are for sale for $200 each.
