Josh Sperling - Modern & Contemporary Art Day Sale Hong Kong Saturday, June 1, 2024 | Phillips
  • “I start off drawing on paper or directly on the computer with a big drawing pad. Everything is designed in black and white lines, with no relation to colour, and then after that’s done, the pieces get cut out with the CNC machine and stretched and then I’ll hand paint a little paper version of [each] to figure out the colours beforehand. I don’t do any colour on the computer, it’s very form-driven at first. After I see the forms, they reveal colours to me. One shape’s feeling could be more intense, so I’ll make it a more warm, hotter, redder colour, while another form could feel very soothing and so a pale blue or something might suit it better. I really have no idea until I put it down on paper and see it with my eyes what’s going to work.”
