"Body Electric" is a recently completed wok in a new series I started a few months ago after the start of quarantine due to Covid19. It is on high-quality Arches printmaking paper, which I have been using for many years as a printmaker and painter. It is done in ink, acrylic, and collage in a color palette of oranges, reds, and yellows, which I haven't used in many years. For this series, I started drawing the circle and cell-like shapes. I have been drawing and painting for many years in a looser style, allowing forms to move into and meld with others. I am also trying to relinquish control over the imagery - where it goes and what it does. I am working with a new mark-making took, a calligraphy pen, varying the nibs and mixing color on the paper. As always in my work, collaged elements are essential parts of the piece, intensifying and invigorating the space.
