‘Art is the elimination of the unnecessary’ - Pablo Picasso.

What is left behind after elimination?  Combined painting with acrylic ice cubes melting methodology on first layer of paper and used second layer of paper to absorb extra pigments.  The artist kept adding layers of melting ice cubes to the first layer and repeated the same process.

Through the repetitive act of adding and eliminating the pigments on papers, the artist experiences the passage of time from tangible to intangible and a transformation process from solid ice cubes to liquid water.  Layers of pigments appear on one side and disappear on the other side.

If memories were like pigments, they could be forgotten, or they could fade so that they are no longer clear and vivid.  But certain thoughts can never age, and certain memories can never fade.
