Water Work 3 (2013)

Water Works Number 3

Acrylic and water on canvas
16 x 20 inches

The third piece in an ongoing series of paintings that I began in 2013 using water tinted with acrylic. The compositions take shape as the water moves around the canvas, which I tilt and pitch arbitrarily. I also use a high-powered hair dryer to manipulate the drips and pools that develop. These unplanned pieces were my first experiments with surrealist automatism, which is a process that I now employ in all of my work.
