Vincent’s drawings are manifestations of his dedication to the efficacy of materials and process. For Mary MacGill, Vincent employed frottage — rubbing graphite over various textures — to create an analog version of “sampling.” Vincent takes two or three impressions of the same textural material, overlapping each, often generating a moiré pattern. Using various types of graphite on paper, Vincent coats each drawing with a combination of purified beeswax and tree resin. The translucent wax coating serves as a fixative for the graphite and produces a warm color that gives each rubbing a sense of depth.
Vincent is a Kingston, New York, native. In addition to his active art practice he works for R + F Handmade Paints. Vincent has exhibited his works in a number of art spaces, including Go North Gallery in Beacon, New York; Georgia Museum of Art in Athens, Georgia; and the Siena Art Institute in Siena, Italy.
