paul_cristina This particular method that I demonstrate here is known to be fairly advanced, yet it is often underestimated and disregarded by many experienced painters and University professors throughout the world. . This method requires a high degree of sophisticated, prerequisite knowledge that involves a complex assortment of Old Master techniques that I studied in Florence while working as a janitor for an elementary school. It was originally through my diligent janitorial duties where I first learned the importance of these secret methods, as they were faithfully taught to me by Italy's Society of Instructional Janitorial Masters for the Unified Educational Methodology and Classical Reasoning Practices of Human and Moral Sanctity (SIJMUEMCRPHMS). . After many years of contemplation, I have finally decided to share these closely guarded methods with the rest of the world, as I felt they should no longer remain secret. I strongly encourage beginner artists to approach these techniques with extreme caution, as they can potentially lead to fatal injury and/or considerable embarrassment amongst your peers and family members. . If you require additional clarification or safety recommendations, please do not hesitate to ask me any further questions. Thank you.

paul_cristina framed shot of Study no.2 - charcoal, pen, collage on found paper, 11x22", 2017 -On view @beresford_studios through July 9- This is the piece that opened the doorway and influenced the rest of the series. For these studies, I was concerned about abandoning intellect. - Working in an abject manner on discarded and rubbish surfaces allowed me to approach the work with no inhibition. It facilitated the freedom of doing without thinking and without being concerned about the final results. I wanted to abandon the preciousness that we usually associate with our own work. - It's about trusting yourself...Trusting your intuition and capabilities as an artist without the burden of intellectualizing it. For small moments in time we can sometimes work without fear, doubt, anxiety and inhibition...it's a great place to be but can take a long time to get there. And being able to stay in that state is even more difficult.
transient_art_gallery Love this entire collection of latest works! Superb! 👏👏
