Unreasonable is a ticket to reason. It is necessary for me to risk in order to find personal truth. This is "a reason to live." I have no idea where the painting 2017 No.13 is going. I am falling into it as water falls into a hole. If the hole is big enough, water spirals around before it falls away and disappears. This reminds me of what engineers call "The Problem Solving Loop," i.e. two steps forward, one step back, two forward, one back, et cetera, spiraling around, brainstorming without bias, looking for the core truth that is a good solution. In this manner, eventually I will find the proper solution to this painting, and to the bigger problem of "a reason to live."
