go back

'9 face' is the first of it's style. the first stroke was the plum rectangle in the bottom left quadrant.

the style-
an unplanned placing of color on canvas. the paint is first mixed on a tiny tray until a desirable color is spotted. the painting is rotated repeatedly during the process. brush strokes should come as an internal representation of external experiences in that moment. no stroke should have reason or rhyme.

visual-
'9 face' should elicit positivity and curiosity. some eyes are dots. some faces are profiles.

philisophical-
the future interest of duplication. nothing that one makes can ever be remade with the same spirit as before. faces.

story-
while a few of my 2019 Wagner senior friends decorated their graduation caps, i painted this.
