By using thick paint and knives to apply multiple wet layers or dig through existing layers, Langstroth often makes his work balance on the edge of abstraction and figuration.
“The ongoing challenge in making pictures is to understand and control the effect produced by the interaction of abstract marks and the things being represented. The marks themselves tend to be difficult to control, but unpredictability keeps the process interesting, and the potential for new discoveries is always there.” —Chris Langstroth.
