A slight deviation is necessary

The blog seems to have run its course. I have decided to continue to research via images on http://avtvm-p.tumblr.com/ follow if you like.

It has been a good ride.

Relief in articulation

Light relief in articulation is necessary.

Having just tied my hands together in completing two articles for journal submission I have decided that I am going to write a story from my text messages (to myself, regarding my thoughts).

More to come later.

Painting problematics in intangible and imaginate spaces

Painting offers a transformative act that proposes the idea of an intangible and imaginative space outside of a indexical or proto-photo process.
When the act is restored to a visual investigation over some idea of truth, it is only then that the act of painting can operate within the current art world, as a part of it, not with intent to control it.

"This is why painting is interesting today. Its medium is non-affirmative and anarchic. Its potential is rooted here. This potential unfolds when outside information is imported into the medium's specific loop." Katharina Grosse.

echo objects




This is one of the drawings I have been making here. My game play is simple: open out and look, settle on something, make a drawing/painting. The process is one of body-mind filtering and resonating a situation. An object/body/tool combination at a specific moment in time and place. Drawings as 'echo objects'...(didn't Barbara Maria Stafford use this term?)

A wee bit behind on the posting

Hi Sue, apologies, a wee bit behind on the posting., Been thinking too much about pattern and placement,I am sure that you would understand.


To highlight my prediciment riddle me this.

In painting there is at surface and then there is the object. When a non descriptive movement of the body, with a loaded brush in ones hand, touches the 'surface' of the painting does the resultant mark echo a. and object or b. the manifestation of a non descriptive action of the body? or both.

I still rather like pattern though.

Sincerely

Michael.
