Purity Be Damned
The more reckless I feel in making my art the more pure it looks in its finality. What is happening to me? The clarity in yesterday's drawings is remarkable. Mess be gone! I jumped into these drawings, and the painting as well, working all of them without regard to anything except unveiling an image. This reminds me of Wassily Kandinsky, whose early work can look messy in its search (yet concisely made), while his late work can look organized and precise (yet from one to the next the search is open without regard to repetitive imagining). An early work, and a late work, of Kandinsky's are reproduced below.
I dislike the lower left corner of "2017 No.4" [as shown in its current state, No.4]. I will play with it today.
Two Works by Wassily Kandinsky (1910 & 1944)
