No Paint

Essex Flowers is pleased to present its second digital commission with a new website by the artist Jeffrey Scudder.

Each mark in a painting exists thanks to its acceptance or rejection by an artist. No Paint confines picture making to the act of giving or denying permission. Every picture made on www.nopaint.org is both a collaboration with the system and an investigation of its rules. Initially the system appears chaotic, but over time one learns to thoughtfully exercise their power of choice. In this playful yet straightforward process, one still finds a voice of their own.

With thanks to everyone that helped.

Jeffrey Scudder is an artist living in Brooklyn and Massachusetts where he spends his time drawing and programming. He currently teaches at Parsons The New School and worked previously at the design studio Linked by Air. Jeffrey received an MFA from Yale University School of Art’s Sculpture department in 2013.
