UNCOMPOSITION: EXERCISES IN LOOKING




UNCOMPOSITION: EXERCISES IN LOOKING
These small paintings were done from photographs taken without deliberation; I pointed the camera at some vegetation and pressed the shutter button.  My intent was to make a subject that was visually complex but with no inherent order, then attempt to look deeply at each detail in it by painting it, and see how the process transmuted it.  The results seem to me to have a certain electric quality.  Watercolor, 9x12.5 in.
