Accessibility is the broader aim of the paintings that I corporate as part of my practice. They are less challenging, require less investment of time, and generally do not have to be “read” with the same intensity that other works require. In many ways, they are the most traditional artworks in that they can easily be incorporated within a conventional lineage of art history. They are easy to view, collect, and even treat as a decoration that can be appreciated at times and at others, forgotten. This is not to say that I believe them to be any less important or impactful as part of my broader practice. They are just as capable to connecting to the broader themes that I investigate in the more literary work. However, they require a different pace of engagement and set a different expectation for viewing them. In this sense, they are the primary entry point into the broader body of work.
