    cracked spacings

    geometrical and splashy try to co-exist...but can they ever be really relaxed around each other ?

    Perhaps it's the color of the sun cut flat and coverin' /
    the crossroads I'm standin' at.

    Dylan, Mama you've been on my mind

    Here we have several frames, the outermost says, Look only at the content, and the innermost says, The content is a visual puzzle ...

    The puzzle is the expressive tension created when two things appear to be one, or to once have been one, but are not now. or never were ... It's a centaur moment, reason and passion in high-pitched battle ... The observer is placed at a crossroads, and chooses ...

    chinapete.. thanks for your analysis of this.. indeed it was about that inner censor that says no at war with the dionysian urge to splatter paint and paint in a frenzy... and placing the observer at the crossroad... a part wanted the calm control of the geometric a part wildly brushing paints and colors.....

    I think "cracked spacing" heralds an exciting new direction, which, and I'm speculating freely here, began with a restrained palette and unrestrained enthusiasm

    At the beginning, many years ago, I could not paint without first framing the working space ... A blank canvas without a frame didn't look right and I couldn't begin ... Maybe this was an attempt to separate artistic visions from ordinary ones, I don't know ...

    I would choose simple wooden slats, latticing, stain them deep umber, and create a box frame ... Often the paint would spill over and the frame would become part of the painting ... I recognized your frames right away ...
