Liss Platt – Puck Painting
The puck paintings (click the link above) are made by shooting hockey pucks at a white, goal-size (4’ x 6’) surface. Permission by the artist to post has been granted. The puck rubber leaves different marks based on the speed and angle of the shot, and compositions are determined by building up the density of shots in particular areas of the painting’s surface.
