Basement views

These paintings are built like plays, moments laid out like knickknack shelves, collections. Objects, actors, props are placed, moved and erased. Images, icons, representations, relations, marks, are left on the canvas like mathematical formulas, ambiguous narrations for the viewer and myself to solve.
