Been really enjoying this series of work which hinges on the abstract and spontaneous nature of ink flow and other suspended pigments within water on a paper surface. There’s a real joy to only give the mildest direction to the flow of inks on the paper and adjust to the random delightful forms that result. Then it’s a matter of building up washes into thicker layers of acrylic paints but still leaving the wash elements, with all their hard edges of ink blooms to take on various errata textures. I can, and have, just spend hours working on these pieces.
For now, enjoy “Dissociative Qualities of Memory.”
