...another way of seeing
Monday, February 15, 2016
All titles come from words or numbers found on the completed composition. This randomness is in accord with the dictum: No subject, No theme, No central image. One is exempt, even relieved of imperatives. There's a freedom in allowing one image to have unrestricted access to the next image, one after the other. Each decision is made to select an element that is in sympathy with the next. The work eventually becomes whole. Harmony - Balance - Engagement are the gatekeepers for each panel.

There is no preconceived idea of what any of the panels will look like at the end of the process of creation. Every work begins from the upper left corner and basically evolves as its visual and conceptual puzzle is solved. What's to be placed next to this color, form or line. What will make sense aesthetically?
The juxtaposition of images and the varying perspectives engage the viewer and may make him look again to experience multiple connections throughout the images, forms, colors and lines. There is no one central image or theme. The panels explore the processes of perception. The eye and mind move freely from one image to another in the viewing. Looking is always a dynamic process.

If the work were to be an audio file, maybe it would sound like listening to six different radio stations at the same time. Sound, volume, duration, tone, variations etc. all vying for singular attention. Today's ride home on the A train, listening to Bocelli when the Break Dancers enter and run their show w/their music competing with my earbuds' music. So what do I hear now, as well as what music do I remember and what happens when it is all played at once? I hear the assault, I assimilate the assault and put it forth visually, carefully.
