REACTION PIECES

My work is sort of a Rorschach test or a cloud that you are trying to turn into a recognizable image. This image can be anything. It is usually something that I am giving thought to at that particular time. I begin by dying my canvas a color. Next, I will draw an image directly from a container of ink onto the canvas. This creates a drawing that is very abstract. I look at the ink drawing by spinning it around in four different directions (right-side up, upside down, vertical left and vertical right). I try to be open to anything (political, environmental, personal, etc.). Whatever I see in the abstraction is valid. I try to follow the abstract ink outline and turn that into the object. Once that image is in place I will continue to allow a type of call and response until it is complete.
