Timely Death


Ink, 2014


19 x 24”


Art 102 Foundations Two-Dimensional Media

Many times, the process names the art. In this piece, the process is different and slightly intriguing. In this particular piece, the artist does not build upon progress and there is no opportunity for manipulation or correction.


The process begins with an invisible water background. At the moment the medium—ink—is strategically applied to the canvas, the piece starts to form itself. Trusting the few brush strokes that took place seconds before, the artistic vision comes to life during the time in which the water allows the ink to flow through the surface. Giving place to the unplanned, just a couple of simple but precise strokes are necessary to guide the ink and form the shape of a skull.
