SINGLES COMING STEADY
Since each "expansion event" is the result of two "parent" drops of color media being combined in a liquid "womb" to produce a unique offspring, it's fitting that they should be allowed their own individual existence as separate entities. Thus "single-event" glue paintings are born.
Soon after the most promising formula tests are compiled (see previous post for one example) I begin creating single expansion-event paintings on 3.5" square blocks of wood. Besides the focus it allows the product of each formula, the modular nature of each block allows me to utilize them in planning larger multi-event pieces by arranging them in various combinations on my work table and noting formula numbers within grids. This is where research meets design.
Next Post - the fruits of this endeavor.....
