The Drip Show



For some reason the question occurred to me: “Could realist paintings be created with dripped paint?” When I asked myself this, I wasn’t aware of it having been done by others before me. It was my own private quest.

I have a lot of house paint left over from my colour field work. I supplemented it with quarts of primary colours and gallons of black and white. Using stir sticks, I started practicing. Sometimes paint runs down the stick in a lovely continuous ribbon. More often it sends a blob and stops. Or a drip hangs on and you wait and wait and wait or a gush of paint flies off the stick just where you don’t want it.

One must embrace the accidental and let the drips fall where they may.
