Knowledge: A priori versus A posteriori.
Drawings from 8/13/2015, both pencil on paper, 20X16 inches
A few days ago I discussed my problem with figurative work. I wondered, was I abandoning it for the abstract? Imagine my surprise when yesterday's first drawing appeared. Then came the second, which seems to have abstracted figures. There is obvious stress between my intuition and my exo-consciousness. Metaphysically, I am observing knowledge in a battle for supremacy: A priori knowledge versus A posteriori knowledge. Does this matter? Not so much. It is who we are. It must be allowed. Will it work itself through? Will it come to conclusion? Can it be resolved? It does not matter where it goes. The questions I ask will produce a lot of possible answers. Such is art.
