With this workshop, we will free-up our movements, discover a new language of marks beyond our habituated ones, and develop processes that can inform future works in any media. We begin by engaging the whole body using big brushes and mops with India ink on body-size paper. We expand our vocabulary using unusual tools such as sticks and found objects. Utilizing our “library” of marks, we create encaustic monotypes on the Roland HOTbox. Working freely, we combine encaustic monotypes with ink and wash. Our process will yield many works on paper that can be utilized alone or with other works such as paintings on panels.

This evolution will yield a new language of marks and a process that can continue to morph according to one’s personal vision, chosen imagery, and medium. Discussions include: a Zen approach, review of composition, and application of processes learned to future works.
