jim polan, 'abstract narratives'

The titles sometimes precede the paint, but sometimes it’s the other way around.  In most works the title is intended to be a compositional element.  As for the paintings themselves, each canvas evolves through several stages and takes six months to a year to complete.  The first stage consists of spontaneous wet-on-wet brushwork, which is left to dry for several months.  The canvas is then “edited” by selecting certain areas and elements and preserving them while applying a new ground.  This step may be repeated in whole or in part.  At some point, graphite lines, “scribbling” and more paint are applied to connect the compositional elements.

The works, more or less, are edited action paintings with narratives.
