“Untitled Work in Paper, Marfa,” takes inspiration from handwritten correspondence (a folded letter). At the end of 2014, I went on a solo month-long journey to the little West Texas town of Marfa, with a seed of handwriting inspiration and a love of letter-writing in hand. The stark, bare landscape and the influence of minimal art on the town made a big impression on me. Specifically, the concrete works by Donald Judd (room-sized open concrete boxes) changed the way I was looking at my own ideas. I imagined my letters as architectural structures that could be experienced at new levels of physicality and scale.
The base of the composition contains subtle white on white mark-making (pastel) that can be seen close up, and when the light hits the artwork at an angle. A detail photograph of this can be seen on my website: http://www.tudyk.com/papermarks/.
The artwork is acrylic, gouache, and pastel on heavy weight Strathmore paper, professionally framed (worth $800). In keeping with the style of the artwork, the frame is simple and modern. The frame’s finish is satin nickel (warm silver color), 7/8” width around and a depth of 1.25”, with high-quality, non-glare museum glass. Wired and ready to hang.
Artwork will ship in a protective custom crate; the shipping cost reflects size and weight.
