Artist's Insight:
This painting was made over the span of 8 months. Sometimes there are some works that take a lot of time to resolve themselves, like a very difficult puzzle; this one certainly was one of those difficult puzzles. Originally, this work started off with stripes of purple that were created using tape. This ended up being the background of the land, which is described using singular weaving brushstrokes that are sometimes blurred away, as if to be vanishing or pushed back into the background. This work was ultimately an exercise to explore painting techniques that I am not used to doing.
