Working in Obscurity

Friday, October 16, 2009

Some method is required by which one could unmake the overwrought. The simple clarity of energy, gesture, power that is the artist’s first inhalation of a new work-that is the thing that most needs to be kept, and that is most often lost. My own appreciation of these shrouded plinth/figures is the way in which this fine film of metal can mediate and eradicate the folly of my own best intentions. Much is revealed in all we cannot see. It is better too, if the artist can be convinced to step aside and stop blocking people’s view of the art.
