peddling paintings

doggedly determinedly dragging
bludgeoned bashed brainwaves
peddling paintings
over old opuses
failed forgotten flames
appear antiquatedly
merge move migrate
shiny steel stained
chiseled chipped chopped

Earth Paint

This is about the only surviving art work from 1981 of a series of abstract paintings based on observations of a creek bed. Originally a piece of paper with a square hole cut out was placed under water in a shallow creek, pinned down by a few rocks. The textures and squiggles in the window were drawn down rapidly and then transferred to larger works. A few of the crumbly rocks were used from the area by crushing and mixing them with the paint. Most of the works were drawn on a heavy brown paper - which was a great surface to work on. This smaller work was a derivative of the larger more stylised works. Part of the drawing was cut up into shapes which were then repositioned back onto the work as contra-pattern floating shapes. Unfortunately the larger works were destroyed because of an annoying fold mark - something I have regretted ever since - but the experience still lives on in various subsequent works and processes.

what's up?

Chop that wood, carry water, what's the sound of one hand clapping?

Enlightenment? Don't know what it is.

You can change it baby you can rearrange it

Enlightenment? Don't know what it is.

Every things an illusion, nothing is real.
