"The guiding principle of the baroque aesthetic was not less is more, but more is not enough."
It is very engaging building works with your hands—being able to physically explore the materials and hold the work in your hands—but I feel as though I owe a great debt to painting (in the traditional sense of paint on a support) that I must repay in some extraordinary manner. It is a debt I do not mind having. It is the constant failures in providing the ‘right’ offering to resolve this that is frustrating, challenging and exciting.
Perhaps what I owe is more to the ‘painterly’. Perhaps it is not ‘owing’ but this is one way of articulating. Everybody longs for that eureka moment.
I’d love to admire and understand someones work so much so that a urgent call for a collaboration is needed on both parts. Watching artists work together and produce work so fluidly is extremely exciting. It is something I wish to do in the future.
