This piece and others like it come from an ongoing series of chance-based works created by selecting mark types at random. This generative methodology serves as an alternative way to approach “found” marks in my practice. The sequence below records the process for this painting.

Over black gesso…five steps from print remnant to spray paint

1-Studio remnant
2-Transfer a smudge
3-Draw with a tube
4-Transfer an existing mark
5-Spray paint
