ANIMAL’s feature Artist’s Notebook asks artists to show us their original idea sketch next to a finished piece. This week, Alexandra Gorczynski shows us the process behind her piece Aurora at the TRANSFER gallery’s inaugural show.

“A bit blurry about how long it took, but I think maybe 2.5 days/nights. $100+ in tubes of magenta and purple, etc, and I was surprised how much green there was in the image which I never noticed prior to painting it.”

Alexandra Gorczynski’s “TRUISMS” exhibit is on view at the TRANSFER Gallery in Brooklyn through April 6th.
