The Uncommon Materials April 2012 How-To: Joel Armstrong - Painting with rust

This month, the Uncommon Materials to draw or paint with group welcomes


as the contributor of our monthly How-To:
Painting with rust

[…] I’ve questioned the idea of what a drawing is, or more so what a drawing can be. What’s out of the question. I was partial to questioning whether a drawing had to be sketched cross paper – why not in a drawer? Did it have to be hung on the wall – why not on the floor? Most of all, did it have to be drawn with charcoal, pencil, ink – why not rocks, sticks, or wire?
