Artist's Description

Abstract painting made up of sinuous forms separated by tortuous lines. Reminiscent and inspired by tortuosity, mean end-to-end distance, and reptation modes of diffusion from Polymer Physics. It’s quite OK if it makes you think of something less nerdly.

This was begin as an inversion of the dark raised lines plus color paintings I’ve been focusing on lately (Clockwork, gauge bosons, etc.). The primed canvas was coated with a thick white underpainting and flat areas of color were knifed onto the white. A silicone color shaper tool was then used to carve the reptating lines into the white and colored background, forming an inverted relief. Once the textured background was dry and hardened enough to paint, additional color was glazed on and dark paint was added to the interiors of the sculpted lines, leaving a thin white edge in relief in many parts of the painting.
