This original piece was created in March 2014. It is part of a series of cardboard paintings that explore a more simplified and abstract approach to my critters. I wanted to create paintings that could be completed in a short time. Working in this compressed time frame, I was able to make more clear and truthful images. There was no time to overthink a piece. Most of all the paintings are coupled with simple and direct text that start a dialogue with the viewer. This dialogue could be one of truth or just nonsense. Either way, it's a fun way to pass time!
