VSOP Projects founder and director, Jonathan Weiskopf gathered work in this exhibition that celebrates, "The grand potential contained within the act of looking." My trio of paintings in As Far As The Eye Can See may be seen as a guide for making significant crossings. I made “Depth Perception” and “Jupiter’s Moons” with their deep indigo canvas panels, as I inhabited a personal era of reckoning last year. Across the paintings’ seamed, unstretched surfaces of variously sized, hemmed canvas panels the overall blue gradually differentiates as many moody, shifting densities and shades. Collections of untrimmed strands of threads extend from corners and intersections. These groups of loops pantomime total collapse of the painting’s engineering. Yet, as an alternate ending, here and there, short, faint hand-drawn colored pencil lines act as structural reinforcement, holding all the elements just so. The shift to warm golden and rose hues in “Self-Portrait” this year represents my successful crossing to a place of acceptance and resurgence. Light radiating with immediacy from the central ochre disc filters outward from within a stitched, vertical column toward a surrounding spectrum of pale primary colors. Showing both paintings together marks this passage I am grateful to have made.
