John Graham has a major painting in the Museum of Modern Art in New York (MOMA). It depicts two woman who look out at the viewer with crossed eyes. I made this drawing and it reminded me of Graham's crossed eyed woman at MOMA, but here the implication is, of course, different. Graham was a great supporter of Arshile Gorky, one of my favorite painters. Gorky has always been an influence on my work, Graham not so much.
My son commented on the small size of my pictures, so today I have increased the size to allow one to see more detail. My original intension for this blog was to focus on my thoughts and not the images I was making. This idea now seems silly, because my thoughts cannot be separated from my art. I also intend my readers to go the MEHRBACH.com to view images in a larger format and higher detail than seen here. However, I update MEHRBACH.com about once a mouth and this blog I update daily. So larger images here make sense.
I also worked on "Pond." It is coming thogether and is continuously changing. The light has shifted from the right to from behind (the moon?). I will show you a picture of its current state in my next post.
