…he calls them “Pen Blow” paintings, and not by accident. His method–developed after countless material experiments with everything from coffee to Elmers glue–goes like this: He opens ballpoint pen cartridges, yanks off the tips, then, with his mouth, blows ink through the tubes onto 12-inch-by-12 inch or 24-by-24-inch panels. When the ink flows out, it’s saturated with color and so viscous that, “Instead of turning to a mist, it blows out into sticky interconnected strings,” …that gives the paintings a spider web-like quality…
