I spent ALL DAY yesterday re-designing my website.  I took new photos of my work in the changing light of my home at Point State Park in Pittsburgh.

SCRATCH 2016- A Collection by Kim McAninch

Consider a blank canvas, starting from scratch.   Using tools-brush, pencil, knife, pastels and oil, I am propelled into an uncharted figurative world.   My mark-making is used without allowance, nothing is a mistake.  I then begin the eliminating.  I am withdrawing from too close a narrative. This is where the struggle begins.  Each work is an invention, an organization of the markings into shapes and patterns, created with knowledge honed through a career of design, but so much is instinctual. I am immersed in an orchestration towards landscapes and figures, in a visual dance between the figurative and abstract.  The flirting shows.   The body of work fulfills my natural, uninhibited desire to scratch the surface in a gestural, painterly manner. Yes, it is fast.  The decisions come quicker, the deeper I delve.  I realize the principles that will govern this piece of art will not be applicable in my next work. The next will be a journey unto its own.  But for now, I am exhilarated with every mark.  I paint loosely but accurately, moving looser, scratching towards accuracy, offering more information, less detail.  What perceived information used by others to sort out this piece is a literal mystery to me.  That concept makes my work more interesting.  What began with my tutelage long ago in drawing and printmaking has left a mark on me and has stayed through all other influences.

 I would like the viewer to consider my decisions- every scratch leading to another.
