BIO

John David Forsgren’s unique art making process begins before the canvas is stretched onto its wooden frame and marks are created through a combination of physicality, gravity and intuition. The artist first texturizes the fabric through a process of washing, air-drying, and ironing. He then applies India ink and guides the liquid by lifting and flipping the raw canvas in different directions so that the puddled accumulations of obsidian-colored liquid lines cling to crumples, creases and indentations.
