red echo (2000)
pen and ink on strathmore paper, 11.5x8.5 on 17x11.25in.

drawing on wet paper

a collaboration with tatiana ginsberg at the ucsb paper studio: placing a newly formed sheet of still wet paper on Ulysses, and placing the ball on top, i can create a trace in the pulp; once dry it makes an interesting, delicately textured, white over white drawing in light relief.

first session: failure; second: three pieces; third three pieces; fourth session pending. the results are here.

my painting is visible images which conceal nothing.. they evoke mystery and indeed when one sees one of my pictures, one asks oneself this simple question: what does that mean? it does not mean anything, because mystery means nothing either, it is unknowable.
