Here area a few abstractions that I’ve been working on. They’re all acrylic or acrylic and graphite on bristol paper and the largest ones are no more than 10 inches in their longest dimension. The focus here was to create some pieces that were just about a reactive process where each added mark is influenced only by the preceding marks. They don’t reference anything in the real world or any sort of emotional disposition, but are simply formal. I have a lot of fun making these and working with layers. I also found that by not painting or drawing to the edge of the paper, a much more organic composition can be created. What I find a bit curious is that I still felt inclined to make them somewhat rectangular. Not sure why this is. Anyways, I’m sure I’ll be making more of them to further explore this process.
