the whole premise of abstract expressionism was to get away from any kind of representational image. Maybe your "form" was what replaced the image for them. For me the image is there that is expressed threw an automatic process. So then the argument, what is this, An action painting, An Automatic painting, An abstract expressionist painting, or two guys looking at a pretty girl in a bathing suit with a big bird. I have also seen a figure being hit in the stomach with a big triangle, kind of like our "day after the explosion" piece. There are more than one image.
Because of this I become confused. It is like being asked to paint what I cant see, and no one else can see what I can see. What makes it successful then. It is on the hands of the Voyer. We have the subjects, all wanting different things. Some want quality of paint and texture. Some want form and structure. I look for energy in a lot of ways. Some want a dance. Some want primal, others refinement. It is a dance in what it becomes. Each time I go into it, it becomes a new Painting. I paint in one shot. One sitting, or standing. If I go into it agian latter it is a whole different moment.
Thank you all so much for your impute on this. I am going to get some more large canveses, and hopefully afford to buy some more paint. If I want a different painting I can go back into it. Do I put on another layer for sake of another layer. Some people do this. For me each stage is a finished piece. After each session it is finished. Do I want to do another painting on the same canvas, I don't know. I do know a lot of people are not fans of my squiggles.
