The ink I use is a transparent mixture of finely ground pigments in water. Value, tint, shade, and tone are manipulated by varying the density of matter in the liquid. Solutions are developed with both carbon black and colored agents. The dispersed elements can be diluted by adding additional water. Commercial mixtures, called “India Ink”, are available in ready to use concentrations.
My paintings are expressed by associating a relative relationship between pigments on a surface. I achieve this by splashing, floating, dragging, and pushing ink over paper laid out flat. Surface fibers bend and sway like trees on a landscape responding to changing climate. Marks, lines, and form move through the composition. Then, as water evaporates off, drying pigments permanently bond in place.
