Circles 1 Watercolor on Translucent Yupo

Even though this is the same size as Circles #’s 2 and 3, for the limitations of a computer monitor this one really shows the dynamic qualities of these pieces. Here you can see how the watercolor medium, unhindered by the absorption of cotton derived paper, really pushes it’s identity forward.

With these paintings, I was trying to minimize my control over the final image. I decided to create a grid of circles because it was a “system” that anyone could do, free of individual judgement in creating the realized art. Without the baggage of the artist’s will, the watercolor works within the parameters it’s given to show off it’s distinct qualities.
