PIGMENT SHIFTS

This series focuses on the materials and process that the painting takes, the journey that we took.  Observing the behaviour and motion of pigments transported along with the flow of water on and in the paper at various stages of the water-cycle.

My process handles and guides the surface tension; the flux and drying of the pigmented water on the surface of the paper and in its fibres.  As the pigmented water shifts and then evaporates the water’s task is over, capturing the motion of the pigments that accompanied the flow of the water during its last journey.  

 

My intention is fulfilled, resulting one-of-a-kind artworks; areas that have morphed into new shapes, textures and soft diffused clouds of varied tone have emerged in the work.
