This use of the artist's knife is lovely. As some point soon I want to write a review but in the meantime, check out the links above. This guy is amazing!
At Denison I had a great teacher for the knife, George Bogdanovich. He got me working with a garden trowel sized knife and on canvases as large as I could reach without a stool. Looking at these works I realize how little I took advantage of the tool's capabilities! I have been looking for work of his online and only found a few references to him by other former students of his. If anyone knows where to find him or his work, please let me know!
