Gretchen Wachs Painting Installation

I love to paint; it takes me to the edge of what I know and forces me into uncharted territory.

There is no clear ending and the journey can be difficult, often exhilarating and deeply satisfying. I love the physicality of painting, the directness; with brush in hand, making marks, layering color and shape, dripping, sponging, sanding, covering and uncovering to achieve a depth and quality of surface that feels both ancient and modern.
