Pigment Amalgamation

Mixing glass paints with a different bases produces very unusual shapes.  Combine two colors with different solvent base in a small glass and splash over a glass plate for unexpected shapes and patterns. The two types of paint will separate and create figures or a texture rich in detail.

Painting Without a Brush

I paint imaginary places. They are surprising in form and color. Control over the lines,  color mixing, and general composition is very limited. The impact of the paintings comes from the quality of the light that produced it, the strange and natural patterns and endless colors. Naturally occurring patterns are caused by many types of forces like splashing, dripping, ripping, amalgamation or suction. Mixing two colors from paints with different base allows unique patterns to emerge. Suction is a particularly powerful force for painting on glass. If you place a drop of paint in a glass plate and then press...

The painting is placed by the window and the photographs are taken when the Sun is in the right position. The glass panels can be moved forwards and backwards, flipped horizontally and vertically, and spaced individually...

Seven types of tulips plugged into plexiglass boards and held against the Sun. Can you see how sunny it was that day?... and look, an abstract glass painting in...
