The Forest Will Keep Your Secrets

This is a 2019 series of acrylic paintings that followed the 2019 Brooklyn Art Library piece, “Things I Left Behind.” The first eight are 5″ x 7″, the next eight are 8″ x 10″.

The paintings that follow are 11″ x 14″, 14″ x 18″, and 16″ x 20″

These images are a continuation of the ideas and imagery that I explored in the black and white pencil drawings on ink jet prints. These are about the mysteries in the dark of the forest. I worked quickly and intuitively. I wanted to capture the shadowy presences in the woods, the energies that had sensation and psychic input, but no concrete form.
