New Series: PROTOTYPES
Prototypes is series of abstract works on paper created using a robotic arm (named Mozzie). For me, prototypes means taking risks and testing assumptions. If it fails… well, it was just a “prototype” and there was budget and permission to fail.
This project is a risk as it is a departure from the cityscapes paintings that I am known for. An experiment in abstract expressionism. It has opened up my painting process to layering different mediums and brush strokes. I am trying charcoals and oil pastels to add more textures to the abstracts. I am inspired by abstract expressionists who create big and loose artworks and artists who are mixing together multiple mediums. This is exactly what I am programming Mozzie the Robot to do by programming my brushwork & artistic process that I have developed over the past decade but applying it to abstracts.
Here is what ‘we’ve’ created so far…
