Material: Creek Water and Sumi Ink on Translucent Yupo 154gsm.
Water notations - the symbols of water.
I work with water, ink and Yupo paper. My process consists of allowing water to evaporate, and the energy and vibration of water in motion is imprinted on the material with the collaboration of ink. Some of the result are the painting/paintings you witness in this application. Water permeates all form, conscious and subconscious, providing depth analysis of the collective and the self.
Part of the Series, Liquid Flesh; under the umbrella of art as a contemplative practice.
Water as a medium to explore what lies beneath the conscious mind.
Water as a mirror that shows us what we see and what we cannot see.
Water as DNA.
Liquid Flesh rests within the continuum of a visual language that captures the vibration and energy of water in motion. Reflecting as skin, capsules and markings, created by rain collecting systems and creeks, hosting queer memories of a shifting humanity. From live wakes to fresh spring sources and majestic sculpting in the earth, the series moves us through cycles of life and death.
When water is alive and wet, it moves in a language of its own. Ink allows the memory of the imprint and frequency of this dance to be captured. Reverberating through it’s liquidity, conjuring our own fluid essence, this work is influenced by shifting psychosomatic and energetic states.
