Dispersion I

2012 ArtPrize Entry

Dispersion I This piece was created during my stay at the Vermont Studio Center a couple years ago as part of a series based on crowds, a subject of dense pattern and form. I use a drizzle technique where I never touch the canvas with a brush, but let the paint run onto the surface, creating its own kind of mark: anything from fine lines to large puddles. This method lets me approach my piece as both a drawing and a painting, a sensibility I enjoy in both traditional Chinese inkwash and Abstract Expressionism. The result is a constant shift between purposeful and accidental, embracing the fluid nature of paint and creating moments of both understanding and confusion.
