Maria Britton (American). Untitled? ~2013-14. "Recently I have started to incorporate smocking, a form of embroidery, into my paintings which enables me to manipulate the surface of a sheet into a bumpy, textured, and patterned surface [. . . ] Using washes, glazes, and streaks of acrylic, I work intuitively and impulsively with brushes, sponges, and squeegees."
