The drawing and painting from yesterday, at first glance, appear to be by two different artists. They are interested in two different approaches to making art. Nonsense. They are both me, and these works are about the same thing. Both began with my interest in drawing objects in a space with depth and perspective. Both feel their way through forms, surfaces, and textures. Animating the composition is important, as is the emotional significance of each object, and their details, from the twist of the lip in the drawing, to the spikes radiating from the central object in the painting. Not strange together at all.
