These unframed watercolors were part of a project I did during a residency at Vytlacil (run by the New York Student's League). I had a wonderfully large open studio with great light to work large. And work large I did. Watercolors are often smaller and framed. Yet the paper I work on, Yupo, was originally developed for outdoor signs because it is waterproof. I thought about making sign sized artwork. I created landscapes then removed much of them with water. I left the edges of the paper white in homage to watercolors that get that white edge framed out leaving them look overly polished. I very much prefer noticing that this is paper, this is a painting.
