Pressed Paintings, 2021-Ongoing

Each dot of color is applied to one sheet of paper in a loose grid, not measured, but based on chance, each slightly different. The first grid is created from watercolor, the second from flashe, and the last from acrylic tubes. Another sheet of equal-sized paper is then pressed on top of the original sheet. The papers then pulled apart. Each resulting sheet of paper loosely resembles the original grids, with mixes of color and overlapping of the surface. These two sheets then becoming a paired diptych, not two surfaces but one combined composition. The ending painting is a mixture of texture and form.
