rapid gestures in ink!
Sometimes while working in the printmaking studio, I get to a state where all structured plans for work fade away, the sense of time disappears, and I lose myself into something beyond any specific mental or physical working mode... Suddenly I realize the closing time is right NOW, the work I've produced is drying occupying an incredibly high number of racks, I need to clean up because the whole building is shutting down, and I still feel ready to go for at least a few more hours!
The above images show details of works done in the kind of state I've just described. They "speak" of the unique multifaceted experience as an artist I have the fortune to call: work!
