How To Assemble The Kite (One Hundred Seventy Nine By Eleven Cubed)

ihet  june 2017  issue 227

How to Assemble the Kite  is the other one. Eleven drawn, cubed, and liberally applied to one seventy-nine.

I like the process of melding these identities. The mixing of fragments to an ordered fashion. Steps faithfully followed and applied to canvas. Its structure, a guiding principle, woven into the fabric of transformation.

It started with the temporary sculptures. Mostly small assembled groups of things, digitally documented, the pieces dispersed. Now the parts stay together. Stories collected, intermingled and named.  Machine painting the end of time and the hole to fall into.

Thanks for reading.

Just Like Swimming

#224 – March 2017

Feeling the motion minus the progress, so put down the brushes and taking a different tack.  I’m a patient painter and moving forward often requires a few steps sideways. It’s going where the fun takes me, and for now, I’m in the woods, delving into collected odd lots, piecing things together.

I’ve been putting off a slew of garden projects, so with the weather getting warmer, it’s time to get out of the studio, put on the gloves, and get to work. It Happens every Tuesday will return Tuesday March 15th.

Until then . . .

Thanks for reading.
