untitled, marks on asphalt by mgilpin untitled, marks on asphalt by mgilpin
i struggled with where to put this: gallery or scraps... i decided to toss it here, because few people look at scraps...

i also wasn't sure what to call it... 'urban & rural'?... 'abstract & surreal'... i chose 'conceptual' because my interest was in the marks... and by extension, mark-making... and as an enduring human interest/action... and, in this case, a specific instance...

the marks here are created as they are for utility and from the limitations and opportunities inherent in the mark-making tool... which makes me wonder about how that may apply to other expressions... and their marks...

I like this, the black on the road is utterly expressive, like its superimposed into the real world. lush lush.

that is exactly how i felt when i saw it... i just wish i had been able to shoot the marks from directly above... so that the entire 'squiggle' would be equally weighted... with none given the focus of perspective...

Great image as I agree, the mark making is definetely special.
