Everything In, Everything Out

#71 – Tuesday July 24th

I vacillate between putting everything in, and taking it all out. Robert Ryman’s white paintings and Yves Klein’s eye searing blue. Cy Twombly’s hyper kinetic scribbles and  William de Kooning’s late paintings. Yoko Ono’s Fluxus performance, Cut Piece and the video of Thomas Nozkowski  On a Hike.  This is an odd introduction for my new canvasses, but I’ve been thinking about the specific works of these artists, and while I can’t really quantify what influence they’ve exerted over the development of the new paintings, it just seemed a necessary journey to revisit them.  Everything in, everything out.

Thanks for reading.
