These paintings are from a new series of paintings on paper called “10 Octets.” ¬†Each painting is 11.125″ x 30″ and started by an automatic drawing¬†using fireplace charcoal soaked in water. Subsequent layers are applied with brushes and plastic cards such as expired credit cards. The use of the plastic cards allows me to create transparent layers that add depth and an unique set of marks depending on the underpainting and pressure I put on the cards and their stiffness. When the Octets are finished I will publish all of them.
