Better than Tanking Water
Despite a vaguely illegitimate title for this blog-post, this is an excellent drawing. Reflecting upon Anselm Kiefer's work, thinking back to Picasso's best paintings, I began this drawing with a dominantly frontal, center-balanced composition. The intention, no matter if perfectly secured, was to approach the making of this drawing with centeredness. This allowed me to play forcefully with forms and create a strongly realized ground; thus keeping the residue of center-balance while freely inventing emotive forms.
Below this post two substantially centered paintings are reproduced, one by Kiefer, and one by Picasso. Both also create three-dimensional depth, which I now believe requires a sturdy and centered composition to pull off well.
