The Tempest #2, 2017. Gouache on Claybord. 46 x 91.5 cm.
Cypresses 2017. gouache on Claybord Like the work posted last week, I painted this many months ago, but wasn’t sure if I was satisfied. I reworked both paintings last week.
Something about the relative emptiness of the center, and stronger contrasts to the far left and right, spoke to me. I am not sure of what my point was… something about not looking for significance where it is “supposed to be”?
Or that there can be competing ideas of significance? With neither winning the arm wrestle?
