Titles for paintings

I have added dimensions and current titles to the images in the previous post.

This naming of work is something I have talked about in a previous post. It is possible that the works will acquire additional titles in the future as they may reidentify themselves once they are fully in the world – much the same as a person may do. The paintings are entities which I have been in conversation with and I can find myself addressing the painting as a You, as if a person. In this conversation the painting and I move forward together. Sometimes it is necessary to walk away, make some distance at least for a while.  Sometimes the way forward persists in being elusive. Once I have found titles I feel the works are resolved. There comes a point when I see that there is nothing more I can do for now. Some of the paintings shown had been suspended for as much as three years, waiting for this further work.
