Énchromos kýklos Archés
Though it appears similar to Pointillism, my personal experience with mass-production printing is more closely linked to my new application methodology. This work was produced by hand using the physicality I have to use with the use of basic painting tools; neither automated presses, nor were pneumatic processes utilized. I control every transition of color by building multiple chromatic layers to create the image that you see. This repetitive process produces highly complex color fields that overlap and work together to evoke the sense that the image could have been manufactured through a mechanical automated process. The unique paint application creates a surface texture that is inviting to our tactile natures, as though it wants to be touched. Lastly, the Greek title is a subtle homage to the foundations of Western art.
