For me it’s not so much about the microscopic, more it’s the ‘depth of scale.’ There’s so much more to a scratch on the surface - it’s… Read More
Look close, very close. My work is a collage of a million tiny ink dots from a pen that is a little bigger than a human hair. The technique is most often called Pointillism.
