Sometimes I feel like, well, in the case of me and my art-making, that painting is a little like constructing a sentence. The piece needs a subject…without a subject, well, you don’t really have anything…. That’s because, from my perspective, I work with a subject in mind….but, I’m painting along and suddenly I’ve come to realize that I do not know what the subject is here….it’s just too ambiguous I think. And, there. I’ve said nothing as well.
Do details really matter? Most of the time, I would opine, they don’t. But, here they are anyway – – –
My latest piece, temporarily dubbed “Venus Reboot” refers, albeit rather obliquely, to that Boticelli masterpiece, “The Birth of Venus.” In this case, instead of an open shell, we have a cooling fan. It is a reboot after all!
