Rag Works

These works are produced by cleaning waste paint from brushes and palette knives.

Often stapled to the wall, the marking of the rags is not completely arbitrary, being constrained by the spatial relation between the painting station (e.g., sitting at a stool) and the rags' placement on the wall. Even when held in the hand, the paint tends to be laid in a systematic manner, e.g., from the centre of the rag outwards. Nevertheless, chance and accident reign.
