Who’s Afraid of Radiation is a series of paintings that seeks to embellish the visceral possibilities of form and color. Scale and shape reflect that of city walls and billboards, treated with eclectic mark making in dripping and colliding layers. The works are about as big as a person and in this way attempt to relate to humans. Highly saturated intense color reflects off of the viewer and it becomes an environment, with a nod to the gorgeous envelopment of Barnet Newman’s 1950 Vir Heroicus Sublimis. An intensely methodical, process based means of painting was a strong focus, where marks are a product of the grand creation of the piece (as opposed to nuanced and specific decisions), applied in a manner that could be perceived as ritual or dance.
