At The Blot of Art

How much attention do you spend staring at your ink-stained cloths?

Tim Moore, fashions that same question with his book, “Tim Moore: Not My Blotting Tissues: A sensitive collection of incidental expression”.

His pictorial book storylines an unseen process of creating incidental art as through the use of blotting tissues he collected from the art studio of artist Del Kathryn Barton. The tissues are streaked and impregnated with brilliant colors and untrained lines that mirror abstract works

Moore worked as Barton’s studio assistant, during that time he collected the delicate white tissues that Barton blotted paintings with or wiped her brushes on. While tissues used to blot pieces of art aren’t the most thrilling of subjects, I suppose I can understand that one can find beauty in the ordinary.

You know what they say, ‘Beauty is in the eye of the Beholder’
