Ribbons of card stock and beet remnants on a paper towel. A consideration born of idle hands and fiddling what’s in reach. Patterns on the towel, the partitioning of the beets and their stains, a modest diversion from monochrome now carrying over into paint.
The back and forth, muted ethereal to bright and strong, the question . . . return to muted? At the moment I’m staying on the brighter stronger side .
Objects of desire. An assemblage. An intimate vignette all in on bright. The backdrop is from the garden, a loose pile of Bougainvillea petals digitally captured and mounted. A wood block, pieces of steel, and the five ball. Monument Five – Memorial to a Prime.
Meanwhile, back in the studio, the middle of a long beginning. The outline of future endeavors with plenty of room to move.
Thanks for reading.
