This was a body of work I did over the year 2016. I was going back and forth from Los Angeles to San Francisco zig zagging the state for work in a huge box truck smoking cigarettes, drinking gallons of coffee, and listening to countless books, podcasts, and lectures. I read this Rebecca Solnit essay in which she talked about how Einstein, and all of these European contemporaries of his would meet to share ideas by taking long, aimless walks in the surrounding woods so they could have focused conversations in the midst of nature. I loved this idea. So these paintings were just mental and visual wanderings made in my off time during that year. So the pieces were infused with the energy of all of these great ideas I was listening too, but visually wandering while I thought about them. Hopefully that makes a lick of sense….
