FINE ART

After I started making art somebody who knows more than I do told me I’m an abstract minimalist. I don’t know what I am. But I know what happens: THIS STUFF. I work primarily in grassello, which is a fine plaster from Italy made from white marble flour, slaked lime and water. I tint, manipulate and layer it with blades and tools, burnishing and roughing it up by degrees. Scratch into it, re-layer and scrape it back off and repeat till an image emerges. Once the image emerge thing happens, I chase it with house-paint, charcoal, water-color pencils, oil pastels, dammar varnish, shellac and gold & silver leaf – practically anything that sticks - until… well… until it gives me that cinematic post-adventure “cigarette-moment” feeling… Sam.
