Drawings from 11/3/2015, all pencil on paper, 20X16 inches
I am a stranger in a strange land. As trite as it reads, I am simply searching for truth. Yesterday's drawings are all over the possibilities of me, from weird reductive figuration to artificial three-dimensional landscapes. As is my habit, I redact none of it. You see it all, even the uncomfortable first drawing with the weird lady holding a plate of fruit. These drawings are me with a series of questions. I know I must commit in order to make substantial art. I must commit fully to a vision. I worry, probably correctly, that I am making drawings like these because it is easier than full commitment. I have set up my studio for the greater substance that comes with painting large works on canvas. Yes, I know what must be done. So here I am giving myself a pep talk. Go and do it!
