Processes are moving on. Freezing as a storage method is now becoming a major feature. I was originally harnessing the process to enable me to store pigments for later use but it is now becoming a physical elemental process of intervention with the pigments. Visually and aesthetically the 'pigment cubes' I have produced offer possibilities for ephemeral and transient work. How the pigments 'freeze' and their transient change from a fluid liquid to a motionless form and back to a melted liquid in order to mark make is driving my work forward. The freezing changes the texture of the pigment it becomes a solidified form. The beauty of this frozen form and its properties can be viewed in the momentary way it was at the point of freezing. The pigment in its frozen state is fragile.Once taken out of the freezing temperature it turns to fluid once more!
