New paintings

May 9th, 2008 | 2 Comments

I present to you the fruits of the this week’s labor: two new geometric paintings with a flowing design. While I put considerable thought and effort into designing these, when I finished these paintings I felt oddly neutral. Can’t explain why this happens. But it happens, and it’s part of the process. It’s not up to me what the “consensus” will be on these works.

Regardless, I’m in the process of reworking this concept for more paintings — reconsidering how much negative space to let in, what colors to use, how many stripes to involve, etc. While I feel like I’m not there with these, I can live with the uncertainty. And that’s what keeps me going.

  1. Grant, a lot of people (especially those that are not painters) think geometric abstraction or any kind of color field painting is easy. I like how your blog shows that it can be hard work.

  2. Thank you for that, Art News Blog.

    Indeed, I am trying. Thanks for noticing. And keep up the good work with your blog.
