paper and ink
These surfaces on newsprint are threatening to overwhelm my studio. I have stacks of different patterns and motifs - some on the classified sections, some on plain newsprint. I use sumi ink and acrylic spray paint to make the marks and then let go of the control as much as possible. I am taking big sheets like these to make assemblages - which I later cut up and collage on some of the chunkier pieces. I actually liked the uneven-ness of this piece just as it is - which of course comes from not caring or thinking about what I am doing and being surprised later. Moving around the brain.
