woman of distortion I

1992

acrylic on canvas
335mm x 240mm

I used a technique of "drip and polish" with the acrylic paints to make a fractal form., made use of this when portraying the concrete form, and then repeated the "drip and polish". My target was to create a fusion of the accidental form and the impression of the portrait itself. This made a big change to the opaque and dry canvas and the digital image was swept away. The hint came from the "Mokume Gane" metal-working technique for creating a "grain" in metal.
