Quote of the day 12-31-2010

For my last quote for this year. I make a very important entry. One by Marcel Proust...A French novelist and critic and one hell of a thinker.

"Authentic Art has no use for proclamations...It accomplishes it's work in silence."

Such a powerful phrase. It rings so true to most of the painters I admire today.

Thank you for reading...have a wonderful day.

Quote for the day 12-22-2010

Today's quote comes from the great painter Barnett Newman.

"The new Painter is concerned not with his own feelings or with the mystery of his own personality, but the penetration into the world mystery. His imagination is therefore attempting to dig into metaphysical secrets. To that extent his art is concerned with the sublime. It is a religious art which through symbols will catch the basic truth of life which is it's sense of tragedy."

Written in 1945 Long before the birth of Onement. But you can almost see the future out of this writing from three years earlier.

New thoughts on Brice Marden.

I was watching this video on Brice Marden again today, and hearing him speak about his painting and the ways in which he was applying the glazes, all the webs of color made me think of DNA and it's ever stringy substances. I was reminded of what Julian Schnabel said about Brice that his gray paintings were a panel of meaning on which to begin painting again. I look at his work today as if he has moved into painting the DNA of art...of painting itself.

I'm sure my comments might have some repercussions, but alas if it weren't for people speaking their minds, civilization would never move forward.

I just put up my newest finished painting on the website. Felt like this time instead of putting the same images on here. I'd focus this space on showing the detail images from the photoshoot.

If you desire to see the full original work, you can do so here...

Many Thanks for viewing.
