The more I am aware of that which is going on around me (in art, politics, and life), the more I know I am on my correct path. Unbelievably, I fit into it all. Continuing is most important, because knowing can be delusional, even when one feels clear in the here and now. Only through work can one test one's delusions and thus separate the false from the true. Yesterday announced a new painting. Yesterday, as well, came the newest issue of "Art in America". On its cover was a detail of a painting by Carroll Dunham (a reproduction of a work by Carroll Dunham appears below my work). Dunham happens to be the father of Lena Dunham, well known for her TV show, "Girls". Carroll Dunham and I also happen to be born in the same year. No surprise here, since his work and mine, though vastly different, share similarity in its interest in the abstract versus the concrete. This from Wikipedia: "Carroll Dunham is known for his conceptual approach to painting and drawing and his interest in exploring the relationship between abstraction and figuration. Of his body of work, Johanna Burton writes, 'Dunham’s career can be characterized by its rigorous indefinability, as his works dip freely into the realms of abstraction, figuration, surrealism, graffiti, pop, even cartoons, without ever settling loyally into any one of them.'"
