I love Black Widows ⚫️ ♦️🕷... growing up in Southern California we are surrounded by them. Once you notice thier presents they have a tendency to seep into your subconscious, as they have mine. I spent a little extra time with this series. I added little spider and web details hidden in each piece.
Also I'm including some extra gifts created for this series within the packaging.
These are not prints but individual paintings. This was created by dipping the edges of the paper in water then quickly scrawling on it with waterbased spraypaint using a fat cap. Then, quickly blast it with a hose while it is still wet to reveal the spraypaints ghost like textures and whips. These ghost shapes become the pathways to then detail out with black charcoal pencil. Because of the fast chaotic nature of the first stage of this process using the spraypaint each piece becomes unique yet simular. The detailing process of the second stage using the black charcoal pencil is slower paced and requires more attention. This drawing process becomes cathartic and meditative as each little puzzle is completed.
-Also, as I was working on this series, my son was inspired to draw this baby blackwidow drawing. He insisted I hide this as a gift in one of the packages as a thank you.
