Greyscale Prisms : Chapter 2.

 

Stacking layers. Over & over. Each painting from this series received this treatment 20+ times, with dozens of shapes added in each new pass. It became somewhat of a repetitive meditation, but to keep it interesting I intentionally did not plan my next actions or sketch anything out. It was more enjoyable to spontaneously approach each new layer as an opportunity to enhance the balance & implied dimensionality. The canvas in this timelapse is not yet in its final form, it’s only about ~70% completed. The funny (*pronounced crazy) part is that it actually takes longer to make the tiny stripes than it does to make the same amount of larger shapes. But for me these strokes are what really make the work jump off the surface. 4 shades of matte latex grey. Painted entirely with foam rollers & many rolls of 3M Scotch Painters Tape.

Greyscale Prisms : Chapter 1.


A new series of B/W paintings exploring abstracted urban elements & skewed geometry. These compositions are different from my typical handmade work in a few ways. Each design is acknowledging & playing off the square frame of the canvas, rather than feeling like a snapshot of a bigger picture. I experimented with layering fast & rough wet painting techniques with more exact linework & details. Back & forth between different paint application styles, hairdryer in hand, I embraced the accidents, dialing up the raw energy, striving for balance between chance & precision. I committed to only using leftover materials from past projects & no spraypaint. The results were sometimes unexpected chemical reactions between old paints & inks. A bit of chipping & peeling occurred, but it fits the raw concrete vibe I was going for. I also further explored using almost exhausted rollers & sponges to achieve the semi-transparent stippling effect that I usually create with aerosol mist. I intend to continue refining & scale up this technique of non-toxic textured layering. As always, this B/W series was a satisfying hiatus from the digital design work I have been focused on in recent months.
