BLUES (RESIDUE DRAWING) household enamel with bar code stickers and pure pigment on cotton rag, 36" x 24", 1998
BLUES (RESIDUE DRAWING) (detail), 1998
When I mixed the paint for my 1998 exhibition BLUES in New York, I first put a sheet of paper over my work cart. Then I went to work and ignored the results as much as I could. Other incidental traces of my process are revealed in the occasional drip of pure pigment and the bar code stickers that came off the brushes I was using.
