Now is the time to fall back on the words of great artists to illuminate my lack of progress on the video documenting the exhibition, A Certainty of Measure.
“When something is finished, that means it’s dead, doesn’t it? I believe in everlastingness. I never finish a painting – I just stop working on it for a while.” (Arshile Gorky)
“I’m never finished with my paintings; the further I get, the more I seek the impossible and the more powerless I feel.” (Claude Monet).
My painting, These are the things I remember. Their remnants cloaked in clouds felt but no longer known , was selected to appear in the May 2021 issue of the literary magazine Beyond Words.
I’ll be at eye lounge, in person, this Sunday from 11-3 pm. The Inside of Outside is an exhibition of works by eye lounge member artists exploring the inner workings of the natural world as a reflection of self. It’s a terrific exhibition, so come by, see the work, and say hello!
Thanks for reading!
