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”.

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."
