KC PAILLARD
Verdigris, Square Abstract Green Softcolored Pastel on canvas

2018

About

Dry pastel with pure pigments that is crushed, smashed and smeared on the canvas with the artist's fingers and hands. It is a very physical way of painting. The multiple layers create new combinations and collisions, the light appears or disappears like a cloudy sky, a dream landscape, an ethereal world. Verdigris is the common name for a green pigment. It was originally made by hanging copper plates over hot vinegar in a sealed pot until a green crust formed on the copper. In eighteenth-century Montpellier, France, it was manufactured in household cellars, "where copper plates were stacked in clay pots filled with distilled wine." The verdigris was scraped off weekly by the women of the household. When the copper roafs got a verdigris coating, they suffuse the landscape with a panoply of beauty and light, deftly expressed through warp and weft, patience and skill, artistry and reverence.
