Letting Go I
Watercolour and salt on cotton paper 640 gsm
In the series of abstract paintings "Letting Go" I mix watercolour with a range of salts on cotton paper. The result is a "living painting", where materials' spontaneous mutations are harnessed into the finished picture. Various sized white dots of unpainted surface build a dialogue between materials (pigments) and lack thereof (emptiness). The viewer is invited to experience randomness and control, presence and absence, remembering and forgetting.
