From her website: “The version of this technique which I have developed, derives from the “spolvero” (meaning dust) and was used by Renaissance artists to transfer drawings to the wall for fresco painting. The stencils are made by tracing a single symmetrical form many times or in the case of the Concentric Series, I work from the center out, being open to variations that happen along the way.”
