Being

Staying in my comfort zone of graphite …. although most of these new works in this series are a slight deviation from my usual ‘fur’ works which seem to be hard to step a way from.

Having listened to a lot of artists’ interviews on the net it is clear that most of us make some initial marks, be it planned or experimental, and then we just follow the demands of the work. Beckett saw art as an act of translation and Barnett Newman said ‘one cannot really say it – one can only paint it’. I’ve also come across the view that art is a place for expression, and especially for the expression of that which we are less clear about. So this is what the images are – something that wants to be communicated in this way. Sharp edges and soft layers finding that they are part of the same unit.
