Full Black

in Gerhard Richter Painting, an old interview from his time at university had him doing a series of large, gray canvases. He says something to the extent of, “I noticed I liked some more than others. I couldn’t explain why, but I did.”

The Cruel Abandon of Time I&II

month 2 of 12 year 2019: go

been working on a variety of things, leading toward a new upcoming gallery of year-end miscellany. with a new book&a paper project in the works, some more formal concepts will be soon released. —perhaps new music—for now just fun&experimentation.
