Paper #1

Form has becoming quite important lately. While walking around town does provide constant stimulus I’m beginning to realize, on occasion, I want a little more control of the subject.

Paper is a natural choice for me as it’s not only abundant in my studio but it also reflects, absorbs and in a way transmits light.

One would think simply bending paper this way and that would produce immediate results but I’ve found if you don’t want to repeat yourself (or others!) you need to work at it. Here I’m bending common A4 printer paper again and again, letting the shadows and black backing dictate my emotional response.
