30 x 40 Silkscreen Monotype / acid free paper
The white surface provides a sensation of open space and endless boundaries – keeping the mind open and free. It allows me to explore and create dimension through the use of bold color and subtle hues. Added texture is created through the use of common and familiar surrounding materials -- pumice, string. The scratching of my nails and etchings from a knife blade. Movement is released through my body’s natural rhythm and energy is pushed through brush strokes as applied mediums such as paint, spray paint and oil stick continue to do the work There is permission to remove markings or reposition lines as I assist the development of the work but I choose not to control the work but to let it surface, naturally. I am interested in the process of moving the work from a point that is connected to myself while traveling on its own energy; I connect back and forth in the experience until completion.
