ASPHALT DRAWINGS, 1991

asphalt on paper, 40 x 30 in

Asphalt drawings are what I made at the end of the night after finishing conceptual paintings on Ataturk and other myths. As a ritual, I would lay down large pieces of paper on my studio floor, pour different mixtures of asphalt-tar, let it navigate on the paper by itself and become drawings by the time I return the next morning.
