The Pulp Series was a small exclusive release of abstract acrylic paintings that I made in Dec 2020 on Shizen handmade watercolor paper.
The Pulp Series was born out of a desire and a need to pair a rough texture with my more controlled graphic painting ideas. My work has often played with opposite’s – experimenting with control and the lack thereof in the painting process. Cleanly designed shapes and the organic spontaneous forms created by raw materials allowed to move and be natural.
The main inspiration for the series was the Shizen paper, produced in India by hand from 100% post-consumer cotton discards in a completely pollution-free process. Providing its workers with a safe job and fair wages, and providing you and me with a super rough, super-absorbent surface to create with sustainably.
All the pieces are 12" x 18" acrylic on paper.
