the remaining parts

While dust and dirt is normally beaten out of textile I used it as a method to dye canvas, using found cement parts as an inspiration. These residues are shaped by coincidence, because of an action, which almost gives the stones a sculptural character.
To colour the canvas I used iron oxide, which is used to colour the cement, in combination with ashes.
These pigments are beaten into the wet linen.


Because of the repeated beating the tactility of the canvas changes and it results in a painterly abstract colour play. The canvas becomes a registration of an action as well as the translation of the remaining parts.
