About

Craighead's paintings operate somewhere between abstraction and the cognitive world, between the unknown and the known. The works often begin with a general idea. He might be reflecting on spiritual or corporal concerns, memory or whatever occupies his thoughts at the moment. Once the first marks are initiated all bets are off about the outcome. He attempts to paint what he believe in, eliminating any marks or images which feel disingenuous, listening to what the painting is telling him to do rather than imposing his will on the work. In this way, it is his hope that the paintings aren’t driven self consciously. They should emerge from a more enigmatic, less familiar place. In the process of painting, initiation, manipulation and removal of marks becomes one of action and reaction. The paintings emerge slowly, one on top of the other, until they tell him he is done.
