Abstract:

This thesis project is an exploration of contemporary painting
vocabularies. I am interested in ideas proposed by artists and critics that painting
is its own language, one that exists outside of traditional written or spoken forms.
Employing a related dialect, that of the curatorial or museological, I attempt to
translate or unpack these languages for the viewer. My paintings are built through
a two-stage process of heavy studio production, play, and material exploration.
First, I execute a variety of painted marks, gestures and forms on sheet material to
amass a collection. In the second phase of production, I pull from this selfgenerated
collection of painted moments to construct compositions reminiscent of
an exhibition, adopting curatorial methodologies to construct paintings. Using the
curatorial in a painting practice illustrates connections and collaborations across
contemporary exhibition and production practices. The results of this
investigation culminate in an exhibition of recent paintings, New Artifacts.
