Pigments & Hormones


Pigments & Hormones is a series of doubled sided works on paper that have in some case been folded and mounted to acrylic glass. The work on paper consists of gouache and powder pigments that have been mixed with hormones. The hormone is a crystal clear liquid and has been used like water in the pigment & hormone mixture. The hormones will have subtle effect on the color of the pigments over time.
