About Fleur’s mark making
The facture of painting is very important to me, engaging as it does every part of myself. I mostly work on canvas with my marks made in mixed media. I use the residual fluids in the mixing and cleaning pots to create lines. I enjoy the risks of letting the fluids run across the surface, turning the canvas to allow them to form a loose grid. Some fluids are absorbed, staining the surface, others are more resistant and create texture. The mix of controlled and undetermined marks successfully reflects both active and passive characteristics.
