Sophistication is demanding. The more I know the more annoying making-art becomes. It is labor intensive. The painting 2017 No.14 is in state 8 and it has a ways to go. These drawings shown today are from two days ago. They are following a direction I do understand. Their clarity is refreshing to me.
I came across a couple of relevant quotes. I do not remember where I read them, but it must have been in an article about artists who died last year, in 2017. The quotes are from a poet and a playwright, both of whom I greatly admire and respect. I leave you with these...
"Most reckless things are beautiful in some way, and recklessness is what makes experimental art beautiful." -John Ashbery, Poet (1927 1917)
