I will be doing a trAction Painting demonstration. In this type of performance/process art, I employ bicycles ("bainting"), inline skates ("skainting") and other wheeled conveyances to lay down layers of paint on 12 x 26 feet of canvas stretched out on parking lot. After depositing each layer, I allow it to dry before moving on to the next. When I have finished, I will separate the canvas into an 8 x 14 diptych, two 9 x 12 paintings, and two 5 x 6's done separately.
Preparation for the performance begins in earnest when I return from traveling on September 4. At that time I will provide more details, and I hope to blog about the event during the course of the weekend.
