Begun during the summer of 2008, PLY is a series of indirect or transfer paintings, whose initial concept was a response to the 1922 Telephone paintings of László Moholy-Nagy. Paralleling Moholy-Nagy's act of disengagement by establishing a distance of time and space between the artist and the creative act, translucent acrylic paint, varying in color and intensity, is randomly brushed onto multiple plastic sheets culminating in a glossary of painted strokes. Later from this extensive marking vocabulary, individual units are selected then applied to a convex panel, constructing the painting incrementally with transparent layers that simultaneously capture the action reminiscent of painting activity while involving the viewer vicariously in its process.
