Thinking of Gestalt in my painting Post 80*

In a couple of new pieces of painting I started this week, I have been working further into the concepts I have attached to Neologism (replacing the conventional textual neologism with that of found images)

The works below have a split persona, bringing different moments of painting into the same images. The work ties slow, planned pattern making and graphic imagery to quick, thick mark making.

I am trying to develop a series of paintings that have a destructive style to them, appearing as if the time consuming underpainting has been toyed with by brutish gestural abstraction painting, and is subsequently becoming robbed of its own surface.
