Yesterday was about me looking at what I have done, not altogether liking it, then asking the question, "What disturbs me?" The drawings I made yesterday do not disturb! It is the painting "2016, No.4" that disturbs. So, yesterday, looking for satisfaction, I produced one drawing after another.
What is it I do not like about the painting "2016, No.4"? It is the compression of space, and the flatness of the forms. The eye does not move enough. There is a lot going on, but not a lot that absorbs through movement and direction. There is not enough in and out and back and forth. Yesterday's drawings have dynamic spatial relationships. That's what I am looking for in "2016 No.4". That is what I will work on today.
