Capillarity and Diffusion

Capillarity and Diffusion

Piece description from the artist

Art marker and pigment ink pen on acid free recycled content drawing paper. 11 by 14 inches matted and framed to 20×24 inches total size. Created by drawing on one side of the paper and letting the ink bleed through (controlled using pressure and by holding marker in one place). The drawing was then continued and finished on the reverse side of the paper. The title reflects the phenomena that give the drawing its unusual visual qualities – the diffusion and capillarity that draws ink through a mat of paper fibers.

I've always been fascinated by the flip side of marker drawings, and decided this would be a good experiment to try to meld marker with fine lines in ink.
