Moving Towards Abstraction:

As the COVID 19 Quarantine hit and influenced by my late mother’s blindness during the last years of her life, I was working to integrate Braille dot letters as visual and tactile imagery into my paintings. I used perforated rubber bath mats as a stencil to ensure standardization in spacing the dots, or combination of dots comprising a particular Braille letter. But heeding warnings that COVID 19 could spread through touch, I abandoned the idea. Instead I shifted my attention to focusing on "dots" as a visual language for abstract painted configurations, first by integrating the bathmats themselves as assemblage in my paintings, and more recently by experimenting with other kinds of dot stencils such as peg board.
