I planned Spring Break at about the same time as I was making resolutions. I am keeping the Art Spring Break 2018 plan.
While friends and family are taking a break traveling I am making good on a pledge.
This week I explore different ways to express the fundamentals of Art.
- Exploring a variety of unfamiliar modes of making or representing concepts. Shapes come to mind for instance.
- Experimenting with known materials but used in a different way.
- Enlarging my visual vocabulary using images and postponing judgment.
- Experiencing the media in the moment rather than going for a plan or assumption of what I am processing on the canvas.
In exploring I find I must question my biases and assumptions about Art.
Small format paintings have some large challenges, overcoming these and opening new ways of seeing the composition is the result.
It is a visual story along with all the requirements of making Art any creative endeavor must have meaning communicated to some audience, if only to the Artist.
Note: All paintings are liquid acrylic on gesso primed Masonite panel ~ 12.7 cm x 17.8 cm, ~ 5 in x 7 in
I benefit and even mostly enjoy receiving inputs. Hit me up if you like.
