If you're going to teach spontaneity, you'll have to become spontaneous yourself. 

-  Keith Johnstone, Impro for Storytellers, 55.

Materials become scene partners in a maximalist process rooted in painting that enables reflexive exploration. Mis-tint house paint is a symbol of our detachment from materiality and of our avaricious consumption habits. Their hides are the skin of consumerism’s tailings. By collaging, sculpting, weaving and draping them, I allow these skins to embody materiality and explore the dimensions we ascribe to painting.
