put my scraps through the wash

2010 April 11th

I’ve been working on these scraps of canvas for over 5 years now–never quite sure what to do with them. I lay the scraps down on the floor near and or beneath where I paint in order to catch the spills and splatters. Most of the marks on these scraps are random. The creative process for these is almost completely wrapped up in the looking–leafing through the stacks of stained scraps picking out the ones that catch my eye (the ones i fall for). On April 8th of this year (2010) I put all these scraps through the washing machine and then hung them/ laid them out to dry.

Arjen Robben with ball

Arjen Robben with the ball on the soccer field
Digital photograph that I took of my friend’s TV while watching the second leg of the Champions League Quarterfinal between Bayern Munich and Manchester United (20100407). The player with running with the ball is Arjen Robben (he plays some beautiful football). I love how the grid of the pitch looks in the image.
