Where water and land meet there is mud – combining resistant yet ultimately friendly elements of wet and dry. Clear as Mud squished together multiple attempts at painting into singular endeavors.
There are multiple paintings in one painting. Some of the larger paintings are stretched and re-stretched twenty times or more. The paintings are made with different scale stretchers.
Clear as Mud takes this back to a self-working scenario, safe in a personal studio. Each painting attempt doesn’t really extract a singular sort of painting because he is always the author. While he tries to pierce the veil of wet and dry he just kind of ends up with something that is clear as mud.
