Black and white photocopy of painting

On my foundation course, the painting constructions I was making would go through several changes across a day. Wax would be added here, something scraped off there – nothing was sacred or precious and everything was new and unknown.

It’s this playful curiosity I’m seeking to rediscover while making this new body of work. The above image is the result of placing a painting on top of a photocopier and hitting print.
