Dusk Editions: Serpico

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, a separate 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. And each one went through many changes and directions before getting to the final look. Here, for instance, is an early version of Serpico:
