Maybe this is me thinking the best of myself, but perhaps my normal way of seeing is actually radically different. The painting (shown above) feels very tame and normal to me, but perhaps it is new and different. Yesterday an observer of my work said to me how ultra-contemporary, and new, my work is because "it deals with space like no one is doing right now. It is forging a new way of seeing." Of course I like that comment. I feel like I am working hard on many artistic fronts, from space to form to color to composition. However, it may all boil down to me problem solving my central theme: animation of three-dimensional space on a flat piece of canvas or paper. I am using the figure as a central form within this space because I have interest in it too, but perhaps it is secondary to my primary 3D-spatial interest. These are questions undergoing continued investigation.
