So I’m starting to get back into abstraction as a break from my thesis work. For this series of landscapes, I am combining elements of doodles I’ve drawn with the imagery from used-up receipt rolls (the flamboyant colored ink that is left behind). For some reason, I am drawn to using these elements in landscape form. In the past, these paintings have been very flat. Now, I am try to push back my forms to give a sense of space.
The one above is certainly not done. The one below is close.
I don’t really know what I feel from these yet. But it’s something along the lines of this song, if that makes any sense at all: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DpVfF4U75B8
