​The Mark

The intensity causes a hole which I have learned to live with; piercing through leaves room to apply a paint-soaked patch to the back adding color to the ruptured canvas which then drys, highlighting the aftermath of the event in much greater dimension.

The weight of the hammer striking down creates an explosion of force which causes the paint to race outward and perform unpredictable maneuvers twisting in mid-air and skimming the surface of the canvas like skipping pebbles on a pond.​

I often wake up the friend who is staying on my couch with a loud bang in the wee hours of the morning; both of us are brought into a state of Zen by the completion of a painting.  I take off my goggles and get a first look, she rubs her eyes to take a look as well….”Cool!” is the usual first word one of us can utter, followed by “Really though?” as we both examine the aftermath of color and clumps left on canvas.  I will always dream and imagine all of the possibilities for the future of Slam Painting.​

Learning the Sledgehammer over the last few months has reminded me of Chinese brush painting lessons as a child; how difficult the Horsetail Brush was to use, I spent many hours in frustration practicing to get the perfect mark.
