"Paper, parchment prepared for writing on and wiping out again, like a slate."

"A parchment, etc., which has been written upon twice; the original writing having been rubbed out."

Existing underlying images inform and direct the composition. Like a dream, the images commence the painting, influencing the painter's choices, dodging in and out, nonsensical, rich and layered just as a dreamer becoming fully awake is moved throughout the day by dream images that linger and penetrate consciousness. Built up from discarded works with collage, overpainting, scraping, and hand writing, the layers become a collaboration of found materials, application of diverse expression, to form an organic and fluid dreamscape. Look closely for the works of other anonymous participants trying for your attention. The title of each piece tells what the original figurative intent was, now buried under sedimentary accretions of form, color, composition and line.
