Shane McAdams – Ball Point Pen Paintings

These “paintings” by Shane McAdams remind me images taken with an electron microscope of paramecium or algae strands. I say “paintings” not with disdain, but because they are actually all produced using various common ball point pens on a resin surface. The compositions are excellent and I love the layered and unfocused quality the resin gives to some of the strokes and lines.
