Why it Exists at All

Painting (oil on aluminium 125 x 127 cm) followed by free writing, WHY IT EXISTS AT ALL.   WHY IT EXISTS AT ALL   Suspended between infinity and nothingness   An appearance not by degrees   A large body of matter with no definite shape   Developing in compactness   Located out of the normal […]

Painting into words

Above, the painting as it is now. I have to take a step back to decide whether it is completed or not. The following free verse, arises out of re-reading the painting, working through the layers of thought that are embodied in its poiesis:   YOUR OWN MEANING   What if you could begin again? Organelle, […]

Wall

Moving forward with the GIF animations I have been doing much experimentation; creating sequences and cycles.

So please see below the two items, along […]

TIMELINE 1 – The Temporality and Potential Endlessness of the Line

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 […]

Sentences on the Line (continued)

Sentences on the line (contd):   I may repeat a sentence The sentence is never the same again These sentences are not rules, These sentences are elemental These sentences are elementary These sentences have endless progression These sentences contain endless expansion Many lines can represent that which a single line does not Many lines can represent […]

To do is to make, is to be

I feel that things are beginning to confirm themselves, clarifying the direction of my project – I am beginning to structure the proposal and shall write it up in a post soon. Jonathan’s Methodology lecture has helped in clarifying some matters that had been going around without anchor, in my mind for a long time, years […]
