Remnant 9
Remnant 9
Liquid Watercolor and Palestinian Olive Oil on Paper
10" x 12"
2015

The Remnant series is a suite of improvisational small works, created with a pre-determined progression of actions and materials. The paper is first soaked with Palestinian olive oil, then stamped with the Hebrew text, then painted with a wash of watercolor. Finally the image is cut, leaving remnants of the text both legible and illegible. The images intentionally suggest the expansive space of landscape, as well as the limits of defined space associated with territory, maps, and borders.
