Agnes Martin

May 18, 2015

I’m having a wonderful day in the studio, listening to vintage Artist Lectures…

A few gems from Agnes Martin, that I felt were very worth sharing (and remembering always):

“When it comes to life, you don’t want to under do it, it’s better to over do life.”
And, one that I know my friends at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture remember:
“It’s better it go to the beach and think about painting, then to be painting and to think about the beach.”

Fractured…

A strange, unsuccessful drawing, I think. But I have to say, that I do like the way that the monofilament distorts the line… IMG_8634

Past and Present…

As a part of the exhibition: ART BANK: Exposé on in Toronto now (until Jan.16th, 2015) – I was reunited with a piece that I made 16 years ago. Yes. SIXTEEN years!! ‘Brancusi’s Cup’ is made exclusively of rubber bands (and an exact copy of Brancusi’s ‘Cup’), it is owned by the Canada Council Art Bank. Decay and evidence of the passage of time was always meant to be a part of the work, and it is such a delight to be able to see this in process!Brancusi's Cup .  2014

Today we installed this diptych in the space of my friend and jeweler: Zsolt, at http://zsoltszekely.com/. It’s looking good, and I couldn’t be happier that this work is a part of his personal and creative space!

Well, things are moving along incrementally, as things do in the studio… Happily, words from mentors in the past are ringing in my ears. Maybe now I’m ready to listen? I feel like I’m starting to shuffle in the right direction.
