Details

Story: Aaron couldn’t help himself. He always needed to be in the thick of adventure. Every weekend he would leave the house at 5 am ready to hike then climb the narrowest of forgotten canyons, never fazed by the heat. He’d come back sweaty and jovial then jokingly tease me that his mistress had called him. In a way, he was telling the truth and we both knew it.

JP Whiting (0 reviews)

JP Whiting is a emerging abstract artist based in Calgary, Alberta. She uses a concoction of glycol ether, isopropyl alcohol and alcohol ink as her medium. Her inks are poured on solid art boards and controlled by a heat gun and/or gravity by tilting the board. JP Whiting's method is as unique as it is vibrant. "When left in the hands of gravity and chemical reaction, ink can perform an incredibly beautiful dance. For me, this capture parallels a photo of a galaxy, or a cut geode, maybe a view of riverbanks or coral reefs from outer space. There is a familiarity that even in my studio, the same universal laws and visual language are at play."
