Story: With my linear ink method, I so heavily rely on gravity. Gravity is the real artist behind this style of art. I carefully initiate the ink on the board but the rest is my witness to the linear performance gravity displays. For me, the result is always an expression of natural movement generally in a brief snap of time.  It could be a passing gaze, a slowing down, an inhale, etc. but generally its the exact moment a movement feels “present”.
