The Relationship between What is Seen, and What Happens
When I’m working in abstraction, there’s a natural move towards a color, a mark, and then a sort of conversation ensues that carries the piece to completion. After the a day’s work, it’s common to see in the paintings what’s in the forefront for me experientially. Until now, unless it’s referenced in a title, I’ve never recorded it. Creating this photo journal is causing me to take a more formal look at the relationship between what is seen, and what is created.
It’s just guesswork though, who knows really where paintings come from.
