stray thoughts

This site is still in its revolutionary development.

I am just back from Russia; organizing; considering new prints and two small shows.

My recent work is all about shape and texture. Rectangles reshape circles, circles break up the flat plane the square. Textures enhance and distract. Geometric forms can enhance perspectival depth, or deny the experience of depth entirely.

Viktor Shklovsky: “Texture is the main feature of that special world of especially constructed things, the aggregate of which we usually call art. The word in art and the word in life are profoundly different. In life it plays the role of a bead on an abacus, in art it’s a texture. We have it in sound. It reverberates and we listen to it in its full potential.” (“Regarding Texture and Counter Reliefs,” Knight’s Move, 1920)
