PAINTING | “Rolo Retrograde”

Posted on June 3, 2013 in painting, Retrograde Series

In late 2009 I started a group of multi-paneled paintings called the Retrograde Series. The paintings are an exploration of the memories, questions, sights, sounds, and tastes of my youth, and their juxtaposition against each other, and the world around me decades later. “Rolo Retrograde” is the continuation/evolution of that series, and the first piece in a brand new body of work.
