Freed Painting

Thirty five years ago I wondered if it would be possible to make paintings that had no canvas.  Was there a way to liberate paint so it could express its own identity?  I developed an archival solution but the results were clumsy and immature.  I abandoned my artistic interests to work in the plastic extrusion industry selling equipment to medical device manufacturers.  Little did I know that time would inform my dormant creative soul.  About four years ago I began having dreams of plastic extrudate morphing into strands of paint.  I had found my answer.  Since then, through much trial and error, I have developed processes that result in paintings that I call “Freed” paintings.   Each Freed painting is made up of hundreds of individual strands of paint suspended in space.  The paintings produced with the Freed painting processes are revolutionary departures from Traditional paintings and are unlike anything seen before.
