2013, Pigment on paper, 24"w x 24"h

In this series I have incorporated something ready to be thrown into the waste basket with the idea of geometric elements like symmetry, balance and repetition. I photographed the disposable paper color palette each time I finished using one in the painting process. The used paper color palettes with paint specks and the ghosts of colors make their own simplistic but organic designs that intrigue me. I manipulated these images and created geometric designs trying to capture that organic quality. I wanted to create beautiful images using something that was otherwise ready to be discarded.
