Flagellum

Piece description from the artist

I court chance in paintings by repeating a process of accident, layering, and removal. I lay the canvas on the floor and pour paint on it, letting it splatter, pool, harden, and crack as physics dictate. I contribute to the additive process by painting with a brush, adding more layers, or I subtract layers by ripping and cutting. I describe the result as topographical maps and geographic layers of painting events.
