My painting has evolved and continues to unfold. While painting, I have found the longer I can remain “open” to whatever may happen on the canvas, the more messages from inside have a chance to be conveyed.
In other words, I have actively tried to move away from the “safe” or “known” gestures and marks to the “unknown”. It seems that what feels very awkward or “messy” in the doing, is more often experienced as “fresh” and “direct”. Going forward, my aim is to try my best to carry on in this way. I’m looking forward to continuing to bring messages from inside, onto the canvas. www.ellenhallieschiff.com
