Without Place, ink and collage on paper, 34 x 26 in.
This body of work developed from a desire to work large and limit my materials.
One medium. One color. One brush.
I chose blue ink intended for use in fountain pens. Intended for legal documents
and love letters. Ink that likes to flow, blot, drip and stain.
I simply wanted to explore ink’s energy, and let the media express itself.
Eventually I allowed myself to use various markmaking tools and I incorporated a single source of collage material into select pieces.
As in previous work, this series meandered its way towards the qualities of pattern I favor;
repetition, anomaly, motif, movement, positive space, negative space, shape and line.
