    [From the artist] “Inside/Out” was an attempt to recreate the type of painting I had been mostly creating in 2016. It occurred to me that as a painter, and a person, because I am every developing, even though I would love to be able to produce some of the types of paintings I had in the past, it might not be possible. I couldn’t recreate the colors or the movement behind the strokes that I had been feeling at that point. It became very interesting to me that as I learned new things while continuing to practice my painting, I was simultaneously losing other things that I had before. ‘Inside/Out’ is, therefore, a reference to my own past paintings, but also finding my way through what I did and didn’t like about this particular background in a new way. I love the texture of the bottom layer of paint but disagreed with some of the high contrast between the strokes. I used the white as a block-out tool to draw attention to the wave of movement happening on the right and the gold stripe to direct the eye to the right also.
