Technique and condition

The following entry is based on an interview with the artist held on the 23rd August, 1996.

The artist has used a fine weave polyester fabric on which to apply two to three layers of Primal AC33, an acrylic dispersion in water. With the intended brushstrokes indicated with red crayon, the canvas was lain flat. Onto the still wet resin, Liquitex acrylic paints were applied. I am painting with a bunch of brushes, one for each colour... the colour moves by capillary (action) or (by) mixing with the quantity of paint from other brushes (to) destroy the drawing. All is painted alla prima. It takes about four hours to dry.

The painting is not varnished despite the transparent resin surface.
