This latest body of work was initiated as a series of compositional studies using acrylic paint on unprimed cotton. However, the studies quickly became about process and the particular qualities of these materials. The absorbent, unprimed cotton ground allows for a sort of fluid, meandering mark-making, where the paint imbeds within the cotton creating a sort of fused surface-paint within fabric- that forwards my ongoing interest in painting- as- object, or hybrid painting-sculpture.
