Washing work

Last night I experimented with painting the top of this plinth black before deciding that it wasn't right for my show. As I was washing the recently painted surface I hesitated at the point where traces of black paint had fallen into the crevices and highlighted every ‘imperfection’, it resembled an inked intaglio plate and spoke to my interest in process, trace and chance. I had to document this surface with my iphone so that I could continue washing it away. Am I a little too obsessed with keeping traces?
