Lost to the Process. 2017

This was the second reincarnation of a painting that had been sitting in a frame. With the painting technique I use, there can be some side affects. Because of the high salt content of the piece, moisture was drawn out of the atmosphere, and the surface began to develop a soft delicate growth. I also observed that it wasn't a flat texture, the growth grew in accordance with the marks on the painting. In this instance, I felt like the line I tread in controlling a process and creating an image had broken down, and the painting was 'Lost to the Process'.
