I intend to develop a series of pieces involving brushwork. My primary investigation will be figure -ground, color, and abstraction from nature. Brushwork will be chosen as the technique of mark making, because of its physical properties, i.e. stroke depth, energy, shape creating ability, and line quality. It is also chosen for its potential to evoke a sense of lyricism.
