My lefthand series are works created with my non dominant hand (in this case my left) for several reasons: first to enable a very loose and free approach because it's nearly impossible to paint tight and stiff using the "wrong" hand, second I'm going through issues with my right hand and with restriction in my country...
My lefthand series are works created with my non dominant hand (in this case my left) for several reasons:
first to enable a very loose and free approach because it's nearly impossible to paint tight and stiff using the "wrong" hand,
second I'm going through issues with my right hand and with restriction in my country right now due to Covid19 I have been unable to get them corrected.
As an artist it is impossible NOT to create so, tada, I use my left hand!
This painting epitomizes the idea of overcoming restrictions.
