CARDINAL PAINTINGS
2009 - present


"Like the Double Ground Paintings, these paintings are figurative and this project is a visual 'grammatical' and 'syntactical' investigation of representational imagery.

In the Cardinal Paintings, pre-modernist representation and genres are pitted against the everyday technological worldpicture of a mediated reality enveloped within melancholia. These are experimental mindscapes which draw heavily on pre-modern Chinese and Western archaic sentiments."
