David Kidd artist

My paintings are process driven. The physical act of applying paint has a strong influence on the direction that the painting will ultimately take. While I may have a general concept of what I hope to convey, my goal is to not allow that preconceived idea to limit or restrain the creative process. The repetitive and random application and removal of paint creates elements and patterns that serve as a visual road map. This layering, editing and re-editing functions as a meditative dialogue between the painting and me. I want the act of painting to be a journey of discovery, a balance between the urge to control the surface of the painting and the desire to allow mystery and unpredictability to enter into the process. By not assigning meaning, I hope to find meaning.
