Drawing, as dense as this one, do not reproduce well. This one you gotta see to believe. My work continues to banter with, and insist upon, the frontal obvious; i.e., truth telling must be in the viewer's face. I have written about this before, but in this drawing I reiterate my acceptance of all things flat that are made on sheets paper and on shards of canvas.
These are consistent self-queries: "How do I miss the obvious?" and "Why is a great amount of work-time required before I see the obvious?" The painting 2017 No.6 has been in process for almost a month. After all that time looking at it, finally I see the need for the patterned shape to move forcefully across the canvas and out of the right edge. Yesterday that patterned shape did not quite make the right edge, but it will today.
Yesterday's drawings are influenced by the Anselm Kiefer painting I reproduced in yesterday's blog post. You can see Kiefer's influence enlightening me. I realize there is yet another means to animate the third-dimension on a flat piece of paper.
