Question: Is it a gimmick or not?
So what do you think about this diptych thing? Gimmick or not, it works for me. No, I am not satisfied. That never happens. But, the painting Untitled Diptych-04·15·2014 is expressively powerful, particularly when seen live and in person: its 10 feet across! And, yesterday's drawing (the second state of Untitled Drawing-05·01·2014) plays with both emotions and space, contrasting as they are from left to right panel.
I am thinking about my next painting. I am pretty sure it cannot happen on one canvas. I am not going to drop the one canvas idiom, but for now I am enjoying exploring diptych, and possibly triptych, possibilities.
