marked and folded...

reversible (double face) paper forms

Wherever there is a surface in my studio, a fast growing pile of papers spruces up!  Painted papers, treated in some way papers, ghost prints, not so ghostly prints, scribbled sheets with notes making sense at the time written and later looking so like coded secret messages... These piles of papers can easily be trashed, or saying it in a softer way "discarded". But I tend to develop certain close relationships with either a whole specific pile or just with some sheets buried there, and I know that some day they will be what it's absolutely needed to complete some future work... So there! I've just confessed this vice of mine, and now you most probably imagine me living/working surrounded by walls made of piles of papers, just like those secluded persons long forgotten... 
It's not so; this afternoon a few long discarded strips of 1st grade printmaking paper with brushed ink experimentations done months ago, were pulled from the pile and ended up becoming the multi shaped form in these photographs! And the pile it came from... is still there, but slightly shorter...

From the pile of my papers already stained-painted-folded and leftover from past projects...
