Not Pretty

Adding dimension with polymer clay, no goal in mind but to integrate a couple of forms I'd made earlier. I was creating this while listening to Art:21, the Time episode which is particularly meaningful to me. Martin Puryear, working in a medium that is personally significant, giving special acknowledgement to collaboration. Paul Pfeiffer using current digital technology and the fascination of public spectacle to make art. Even tedium and repetition's relationship to building a work of art are mentioned and the obsessive devotion to producing something, is touched on in the interview with Vija Celmins. All these are aspects that have consumed the hours of every working day of my life for the past few years.

This painting is about 5" x 7" acrylic and polymer clay on gessoed mat board, protected in a cream-colored mat. As with all these little studies, the text above is handwritten on the back of the painting, which is also signed and dated.

Cloud Sandwich

Having fun listening to back episodes of Art:21, a documetary series of interviews with contemporary artists, which you can watch online by going to thirteen.org and going into their Video pull-down menu. Thought provoking to say the least, totally entertaining.

This painting is an abstract created with the landscape in mind, placing color in positions that it typically appears in nature. The angle of horizon proving the whimsy of the work.
