Permanent marker on paper (Black Monochrome) # 01-03 (2020)
Edding permanent marker, Zerkall paper 225g
63,5 x 76 cm

The drawings utilizes the effect appearing on the substrate of a sheet of paper treated with permanent marker ink. The marker pen has itself never touched the paper of the artwork, only left its mark by being sifted through an overlaying paper sheet. In effect, after the black monochrome on the top paper sheet has been discarded, the result underneath is a bastard imprint that still unveils more qualities of surface, texture and nuance than the solid black monochrome of the original.
