Yesterday I was telling you how Zak Smith’s art was the starting point in this little project of mine. At the same show I got to see the work of another favorite artist IRL, Dominc McGill.
Again there’s a lot of mono with splashes of color, intensified contrast. I love the mishmash of text in art, increasingly it’s something I use in my own work. It was around this time the Tate Modern was showing Mira Schendel.
Much of Schendel’s work was displayed hanging so you could walk round, through and between the pieces, be involved, enveloped, almost engulfed.
So I’m aborbing this work, there’s an osmosis going on. I’m gathering ideas and doodling them together.
Elements are coming together to form something new, something else.
I really don’t know where I’m going with this, but I’m riding the wave.
Destination is way down the list. Would probably be a distraction right now. Fuck destination.
As is my way (whenever I can) I moved on from here to screen printing. I’ll show you where that went next time.
