Dusk Editions: Colette

-->
Ky Anderson, a Brooklyn-based artist I respect immensely, asked me to create something for her venture, Dusk. Dusk employs a very loose definition of the word edition. In a usual edition, for instance, each piece matches almost identically; but I use hand-cut paper stencils, many layers of them, a separate one cut for each board, and the paint splotches unevenly, making each piece unique. I created two editions: Serpico, and Colette. Each was created on wood panel, using hand-cut stencils plus soupy gesso and gloppy acrylic. Here's a view of the process:





And here is the edition Colette: 7" x 5", mixed media on panel.
(Note: this edition has sold out.)
