Zero tolerance for whiteness IV (Phi) (from an art series: Zero tolerance for whiteness)
2018, acrylic, canvas, 40 x 100 cm, sign. on the reverse (ID: 5563)
Zero tolerance for whiteness is a paraphrase of the name of the experimental album Zero tolerance for silence by American guitarist Pat Metheny and a tribute to his work. Each work consists of two layers with points of colour numbered from 1 to 20. The selection of the individual colours was decided by lottery. By superimposing the two layers, 400 colour combinations were created within the 2400 points that make up each image.
Acrylic paint - its binder is polyacrylic resins, in which pigment particles are suspended. Used in printing, construction and painting. In artistic applications, they can be applied either thickly, like oil paints, or thinly, in transparent layers (lasered). They do not have as large a colour range as oil paints or tempera paints. In addition to pigment, they can also contain gum arabic and other substances that alter viscosity and the speed of drying.
