“What we cannot speak about we must pass over in silence.”
I believe passionately that it is vitally important for an artist to not merely show their work but to explain and clarify its meaning and intent in as much detail as possible. As I have said elsewhere on this site, "A picture is worth a thousand words - but which thousand words?" Far from its meaning being self evident, an image is essentially mute.
Clarification of my work processes and practice are, I feel, an integral part of who I am; as an artist and personally.
Recently I started a new project to document my latest work in progress. This project reflects my research, thinking and processes in real time, as it were, rather than the purely reflective nature of my Retrospective blog. I have called this new blog Reality By Proxy.
Even more recently I have started a new collaborative blog, VISCER-ebr-AL, with friends and fellow artists Marc Yeats, Anna Lee Keefer, Tim Grosvenor and Jonathan Kaufman-Styles.
