I had a beautiful experience in the studio yesterday. One of my paintings I had put up caught my eye. It was moving within the panel. Pulsing. No, I wasn’t stoned. I looked around at the other pieces I had up and they all were undulating and vibrating. For a moment the works felt like they were alive and breathing. It lasted about ten seconds. Experiences like these keep me going.
More from the Two Figures series
Here are some more in the Two Figure series. (I’ll eventually get around to coming up with a more poetic name for this series.) Some of them may be a bit confused. But I am drawn to how the figures are filling the panels.
I want this series to feel like living flesh on a panel. Gross.
No. I don’t want them to only feel like biological life. I want them to hint at the energy that is behind our flesh and blood existence.
