Utan penselspår

Anne Truitt, Morning Choice (1968)

Jag upptäckte konstnären/skulptören Anne Truitt med anledning av att en ny volym av hennes dagböcker har publicerats postumt. Från Wikipedia fastnade jag för det här om hennes metod:

The structures are weighed to the ground and are often hollow, allowing the wood to breathe in changing temperatures. She applies gesso to prime the wood and then up to 40 coats of acrylic paint, alternating brushstrokes between horizontal and vertical directions and sanding between layers. The artist sought to remove any trace of her brush, sanding down each layer of paint between applications and creating perfectly finished planes of colour. The layers of paint build up a surface with tangible depth.
