"I usually do multiple studies of a piece before beginning, but with this one I just dove right in. My formats are all custom sizes because I use a specific form of geometry to determine my rectangles. They are hardly ever your basic 18”x24” etc. Once the rectangle was determined I began drawing with oil paint. After the basic drawing I moved big brushes and began layering. This was a very visceral painting for me. The imagery was important as far as fitting into this new series, but I was also very concerned about what the paint was doing. I really wanted to push the mark making of the brush strokes to an almost abstract quality. The piece is about movement…separation and a coming back together. The brushwork had to reinforce that." - John Wentz
