My invitation is for the viewer to create their own storyline when looking at one of my pieces.
I like to engage people to use their imagination. For me, the best part of a live show is hearing what people see when they look at my art.
I have a background in design which certainly gives me the ability to choose color and create attractive compositions.
My design is very structured. What I like about the inks in contrast to my design is that creating in alcohol ink is are the opposite of structure. It flows.
The term Alcohol Ink has several meanings. On the one hand, it stands for the painting material used, i.e. the alcohol ink itself. On the other hand, it is also a term for the fluid painting technique used. Like so many other trends, this one originated in America. While this method is still relatively unknown, Alcohol Ink is already experiencing a real hype in America. As the name suggests, Alcohol Ink inks consist of a very large part of alcohol mixed with color pigments.
Alcohol has the property to evaporate very quickly, which has some advantages with this painting technique. The colors dry very quickly due to the evaporation of the alcohol. However, even dried ink can be “revived”, so to speak, if pure alcohol or fresh ink is added. In this way, the painting can be changed at a later date, for example by adding new colors. This possibility is not available with acrylic paints, for example.
