The Mother Project
A few years ago I inherited a number of canvases I found under my mother’s bed. Most of the canvases were gessoed over, a few had some image of what mom had been painting in the past. She had no interest in painting again and no attachment to the remaining images, and so, with her blessing, I am painting on her canvases. What I am painting is a mystery to me. The images that come and I follow have changed a number of times in the last two years, as though I were painting 20 paintings on five canvases. Who is painting? I am on a journey informed by an exploration of The Mother. I am following stories revealed, reviewed, revived and re-imaged.
