 “Paintings”

 

Currie’s paintings come about through iterations of process and material.  These iterations as seen through mereological thinking and self-rules create series of paintings that can be seen as parts and wholes. Each part is a study of its individuality and its relationship to the whole and a sort of versioning of painting itself.  Using traditional materials such as oil paint, rabbit skin glue, linen, canvas, and stretchers, these components are the tools and the process themselves.  Mark making occurs through combinations of stains, smears, and inversions with a variety of paints, primers, and glues. This series following up previous works -  “Found Surfaces” have derived the following “Paintings.”
