Inner Material 1990

By following astronomical maps and planetary paths I want to dispense with the mechanical act of mark making. To begin with the paintings followed a strict route and very rarely deviated from the original course. As the series developed it became more of a challenge to follow and disemelate the original trajectories of the paint.

Some of the canvas became so laden with paint that it was hard to distinguish between the raw material of the canvas and the boundaries of the paint edges. The resulting process had to be slowed down to accomodate the slow drying times of the paint.

The last process (which continues) releases the paint from canvas altogether, and starts the routes from a central core similar to the initial astronomical trajectories.
