Petrolatum Jelly Painting

The process of “Petroleum Jelly Painting” features applying white petroleum jelly all over the canvas, spraying on colors, mixing the colors on the surface and scratching the canvas. Petroleum jelly’s texture is like that of oil paint, but it never gets oxidized and sometimes melts down in the heat. Its painted surface always conceives the potential of change while appearing to be fragments of a dying landscape. It shows us a concept of time that the present exists only momentarily even for paintings, which are innately understood as fixed existence.
