Untitled Drawings-02·10·2015 Nos. 1, 2, 3, pencil on paper, 11X14 inches
Yesterday my time in the studio was limited. Today I wish to bring with me my new feeling that value contrast can enhance the expressiveness of my painting. Right now I am referring to my recent painting, Untitled Painting-01·06·2015. Slowly I have been increasing its value contrast, and I believe it is better for it. For quite a while my drawings have exhibited the usefulness of contrast, not just in value, but also in scale and in form. Going to abstraction in my painting has me more aware of the expressive importance of value contrast.
