Binding forces of the subatomic are the same that shape the universe, and are in a state of constant renewal
musings around string theory and the energy of sub atomic particles
I use black pastel on vellum in an additive/reductive process. The surface is both slick and clean, yet has a remarkable amount of tooth to push the material around on and carve out the image or figure.
The pastels are on surfaces that provide a substantial texture to allow and hold a many layered velvety bloom. These pieces will not be sprayed. It is recommended that they be matted with a double layer mat incorporating a trough or including a spacer prior to framing.
