Moving Towards Abstraction: As the 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. Heeding warnings that COVID 19 could spread through touch, I abandoned the idea. Instead I shifted my attention to using the perforated rubber bathmats as assemblage rather than as stencils to standardize my Braille dot letters and bring them to the large scale of my paintings. (Normal Braille is fingertip size.)
