Here’s two mark-makers, out of one. It was originally a sponge roller. The sponge had deteriorated a bit. I took it off and replaced it with rubber bands. I cut notches into the sponge and now I’ve a sponge stamp as well as the rubber band roller.
I’ve now about forty handmade paintbrushes, rollers and stamps, equipping myself with the means of approximating, interpreting, representing many patterns to be found in nature. And I’ve used them to make a big stash of large monoprints to be cut or torn and used as collage material. I’ve made the monoprints, about 50 of them, on deli paper. Yes, that’s the paper used by delicatessens for wrapping food. More on that later.
All that’s left to do is to create some sensational artworks of staggering genius.
The easy bit.
