don't we do this with painting? of late, dealing with a slightly new direction in my work, i've felt an odd joy and desperation in my efforts. pleasure? yes, to be sure-- but there is a detached sense of the path never before taken... it's my opinion that we should, as creators, work in this sort of innocence. if at all possible...
with the gestural mark-making going on in the studio, i've noticed 3 rather distinct qualities:
the circular, organic calligraphy; the more formal, "worked" line and a sort of instinctual shorthand, if you will... all 3 go on view this weekend.
and i'll have my baby with me.
she can lend her gaze to these objects
and in doing so, perhaps, give some depth of purpose to all of it,
the notions of art, collectors,
MFA's and the like be damned...
