Wrinklegrams II, 2012-present (ongoing series)
Acrylic on sheets of found lined paper
Dimensions variable

Starting in 2012, I began collecting sheets of crumpled lined paper found around the schools and colleges where I taught. Many of these sheets were unmarked. They currently form a pile in my studio. I take a sheet of paper, crumple it up further, and then paint lines over all the wrinkles using glossy white paint. I am aiming for a one-to-one correspondence between the existing mark--the wrinkles--and the painted mark. The marked sheet of paper is then placed in a second pile. This is an ongoing work--the pile of found sheets of paper and the pile of paintings will keep growing over time.
