Completed Sept 2015

This series started as a conversation with other artists about the relative affordability of art. I decided that it was possible to create a series based upon the idea that just about anyone can afford to own an original piece of art.

I started with the idea I had started riffing on after finishing the Meditations series, continuing to create prototypes while considering how to fulfill my vision. And then I realized the prototypes were the vision. Why not invite the world at large into my creative process where I paint tens of small paintings to figure out what works? Thus ProtoNext was born.

ProtoNext is a series of 160 small acrylic paintings based on the principle that each new work is affected by previous ones. Successful compositions continue to morph in and out while others are completely discarded…similar to a game of telephone, the original message alters while a just a few words remain the same.
