I create my ink pieces with a tool I designed myself that’s somewhere between a squeegee and a brush. Initially I was inspired by the spontaneity and energy of abstract expressionist painters (e.g. Jackson Pollack, Franz Kline), but have since developed my own vocabulary of mark making. People often ask if there’s a technique, but what’s more important is having an understanding of the materials and a feel for how ink flows. _ #TheOtherArtFair #TakeoverTuesday #TOAFtakeover #thomashammer @_thomas_hammer_
