What is it that makes it a decision when and if the painting is finished? The more the mind is involved, the less the final picture seems to be real. A priori and even a posteriori knowing does not work. The paintings are not of those who wait for the dawn of a day even if they keep the light. Who decides? The Occasion, the Encounter, the Real, in its indefatigable expression.. in order to designate reality, all that is known must come to an end.
..there is a quietness in a room, the big space opens up. Because thoughts are always conditioned, they require time. But the mind that is clear decides effortlessly changing the movement of brush strokes in various directions. Once it is slow, the other time immediately very intense. The colors speak their language, they even communicate with a space, not only given, but that which is not present. Anything is possible. But nothing seems to be so essential as a freedom in which all involved meet and create. It is not intuitive, nor well known, but very active in its stillness in the eternal moment of now.
I have composed this brief but intimate insight inward of my creating process.
These works on paper serve for me as studies for works on larger scale canvas.
