Paint Bucket Bottoms

PAINT BUCKET BOTTOMS

Sometimes art happens on its own.

When I paint large canvases, I am not using the traditional flat, wooden, oval"ish" palette you are probably familiar with. Rather, I mix copious amounts of paint in re-purposed plastic food containers.

As you might imagine, with continued use, residual paint builds up. The colors are random, as are the patterns, clashes and brush strokes left behind.

You can see in much of my work I leave a lot of "room" for the random and the unintentional: the fulcrum between intentional application of paint and the random "magic" that "just happens"–think of the author whose characters begin to have a life of their own–is always shifting from painting to painting, and within a painting itself.

These images of paint bucket bottoms are 100% random...well, I did photograph, lightly edit and crop them...so let's say 98% random.

So, did I actually create these paintings? Yes, I created them–my hand, my brush, my paint collected at the bottoms of my buckets. My conscious intention was focused elsewhere while I was creating these paintings in the bottoms of paint buckets.

I ask the question in return: does art need to be consciously generated?
