A Newer Iteration

Back in February, I posted a piece from my Collaborating with Providence series. This piece is still from that series but a newer iteration of the series. There are two key elements in this series. The first is the drips of paint left over from my other paintings. The second is the ink line work what I initially called interventions. Originally, the interventions were ink line work or pastel work that helped transform the messy overlapping drips into a coherent composition.

In this iteration of the series, I am more intentional about the drips. They help provide the structure of the work. As before all the paint comes from what is left on my from my paintings. But in these works, I begin often with non-standard paper sizes. I am more intentional about the color relationships and allowing the drips to speak. This long paper format has become a favorite of mine allowing each drip its own voice.

The line work, on the other hand, takes the vocabulary from my Ecclesia series. These drawings reference the persons more explicitly that the previous interventions and speak more directly to the work of providence, the drips, and our interaction with it, the line work.

I enjoy how the drips provide a structure reminiscent of Gothic architecture and stained glass while the contemporary line work references the contemporary believers. History and today working together.
