Reduction is getting me closer to my intended impact. Yesterday I worked on three paintings. All are better. I expanded their impact by reducing the complexity of their forms. This resulted in an increase in each painting's percentage of negative space. "Reclamation" is wider. "After Words" is wider and taller. "Course of Action" remains dimensional stable, but the colors in its forms are simplified.
Today I believe the pictures tell more than any words I could muster. Reduction is occurring. I have been working very hard to find my bottom line. These works are examples of successful acknowledgement. They are not perfect. They are not absolutely right. But they are significantly reduced. These are demonstrations that I have stripped away some of the falderal.
