Blind contour series
Recently my painting has irritated me. It became too structured, too focused on realism when that has never been my goal. I don't want my work to be illusionistic, I want it to remind you that it is a painting, drawing, etc. I felt trapped in all this rigid structure that I had forced upon myself, without purpose. Blind contours were my solution to lose control, to let go. These are the result, with an additional large drawing to be added soon. It is so interesting to me that such a range of drawings occur when repeatedly looking at the same object. After a bit I would look down at the paper and think, "oh, well I should stop now". It was liberating.
