Using abstraction as a means to negotiate between this internalized and externalised perception, Overstreet’s paintings evolve as contemplative planes of contradiction. Thick gooey swatches of impasto are juxtaposed with wandering drips, hurried markmaking, and defined geometric forms. Areas of patchy tincture battle to dominate their visible under-painting, while tonal perspective is skewed, as each individual shape tries to extrapolate itself from the flatness of the picture plane. Overstreet’s paintings evolve as instinctive and raw sentiments; eliciting a faux-naïve charisma his paintings bridge the gulf between primordial ritual and modern excess.
