I consider my Group Therapy series to be a kind of Post Abstract Expressionist sensibility, with gestural mark-making, abstraction, and figuration all are working together: to emphasize surface; create spatial tension (e.g., showing both a perspective, with emphasis on the flat surface of the canvas); and the contradiction of abstract gestural marks, mixed in with figurative narration.
The Freudian connection in these pieces refers to the sexual innuendoes suggested by the form. Also the figures are in relationship with one another, which supports the idea of a therapy group.
