I created this body of work between 1956 and early 1959 while living in Italy and Austria. This process, which I developed, permitted me to “paint” with dry pigments on paper. The image is “fixed” with the plastic, AYAT, that has been dissolved in acetone. The results are permanent and it produces a slightly rough finish that permits the addition of layers of dry pigment or the removal of them with acetone. I have found it to be the most fluid medium (with the exception of digital imaging) that I have ever used. The dangers of using acetone forced me to abandon this medium in 1959.
Unless otherwise noted, all works are 28″ X 39″.
