Convolver (Pastel, 9 x 12, 2017)

Done this year, in fact, just recently. I keep devolving back in time with constant references to the 20th century which I integrate with my current sensibility. I am not sure what that means but I keep working in either an abstract way blended in with what I think of as figural expressionism. Kirchner, Malevich, and Krasner currently have an enormous pull on my thinking.

Keeping stuff is good. Two more nudes (#36 and #37)

From 2007 #36 From 2007 #37

Again, from that sketchbook I recently unearthed and opened. These drawing are of the same person but in very different styles. The point is that, as I see it, the model or the object of a work is merely a starting point. Call it an inspiration if you like but the trick is to fashion something from reality. I am not interested in reproducing reality. That’s for the camera in the hands of a robot. My goal is to create something that is visually interesting, if only to me but also, hopefully, to others as well. On 11 x 14 archival, Aquabee paper.

Keeping stuff is good: #34 & #35, Seated Nudes

From 2007 #34 From 2007 #35

Again, from that sketchbook I recently unearthed and opened. These drawing are of the same person in two consecutive poses. She was quite still but also conveyed action. That is what I call a first rate model. She picked the poses she wanted. Except to tell them “nothing weird, uncomfortable or unnatural,” I let models figure it out for themselves. They are professionals who know what they are doing. Obviously, she is a large person. She is also quite graceful.  #34 is in crayon; #35 is ink and watercolor. On 11 x 14 archival, Aquabee paper.

Keeping stuff is good #33

from 2007 #33

Again, from that sketchbook I recently unearthed and opened. The model transfigured. I have no idea why I drew this the way I did. But that’s nothing new. It always starts with the best way to use the space on the white paper or canvas in front of me and the rest happens on its own. Some end OK, others not so much. Is it a matter of “letting the creativity juices flow” or inspiration. That’s all a bunch of crap dreamed up by those who have no idea about creating stuff. It may have been getting late and we were in a rush to get home. Crayon and oil pastel on 11 x 14 archival, Aquabee paper.
