Unintentional Title

Almost Finished and Just Beginning – Looking at my previous post, unintentionally I have made a working title for an as-yet-untitled work, from a factual truth about its co-existence relative to another painting sitting here in the studio. Perhaps it is finished as it is. New lines of thought are opening out, this is what […]

Pictopoiesis and Practopoiesis

I much appreciated Danko Nikolic’s comment on the latest pictopoiesis video and have selected for this post a short animation which I found in my library – it comes across to me as being how the invisible activity of a (living) thought might look like, reminding me again of practopoiesis, and Danko Nikolic’s paper, How […]

Actualisation

Instead of focusing on my painting as being something limited and constrained, even though it has arisen out of limitation and constraint, I have focused instead on the potential it represents.

Painting – a continuum

Post for Second Symposium

The exhibit consisted of a small 25 x 25cm, oil on aluminium painting and a digital animation, duration just over 2 minutes. which I would like to demonstrate here. So please see below the two items, along […]

TIMELINE 1 – The Temporality and Potential Endlessness of the Line

Waring Rago Studio still – painting sequence captured photographically, as stills, desktop printed and laid out in sequence next to OMPHALOS by Nicholas Gulig. I have been thinking about the Line – all the things that a line is/can be/might be/represents – and in the manner of Sol LeWitt’s Sentences on Conceptual Art (as Jonathan […]
