DESCRIPTION

Acrylic, airbrush, enamel, fabric & thread on canvas | 2018

These works from Cheatwood begin at his sewing machine as an autobiographical patchwork of “inorganic forms”. Heavier brushstrokes are amplified by molding paste portraying movement, tension and action.

"Process is everything for me as a painter. There has always been this game going on in my practice of balancing negative space and structure, which I love. I tend to use differing fabrics that I sew together to allow my paintings to take a breath when they need to. I try to include everything I can within a canvas without overwhelming myself, as well as the viewer. I focus on the interaction with the viewer of the painting, as I want my audience to feel involved. For example, when I write something within a canvas, make a mark, use a color, sew, or let my work roll around my studio floor, I'm interacting. I'm trying to convey an honesty by showing you the bones of this painting, as well as my process, and not just what's on the surface.”
