“Remnants”
Watercolor & Ink

18" x 24"
Remnants is one of the “Accidental Pop Art” series, and it is a piece I created at 8 to Create 2018, a live art event, at the Link Gallery at the University of Illinois. Given the short amount of time to produce an artwork I chose a style that was atypical of my work.  The process begins with random, abstract blobs on paper with watercolor.  I then allow the shapes to determine the subject matter.  The shapes are defined by painting and drawing over the abstract shapes with pen and ink.
