Piece description from the artist

I am often prone to thoughts of wanderlust. Vessels will arrive in my work as symbols for either the onset or prospect of a journey – whether it be far and away or short and close to home – or for the intrinsic idea of escape.

The application of paint in this piece was pointedly excessive, an exercise in gauging my own limitations with the medium. As much paint was applied, much was taken away with the palette knife, leaving me to play with not only how much paint was arriving to build forms, but to also play with the kinds of things I could accomplish with the absence of the paint.

Through all of that – the adding and subtracting of much paint to describe simple symbols and a simple word – there is left what I consider to be an aesthetically pleasant and mysterious piece that whispers a kind of inspiration to anyone looking for change and newness.
