|Sketch 14 - Tracks, Acrylic on Saunders Paper 22" x 30"|
While working on this piece, I was thinking of Robert Smithson's "dialectic of nature." In this sketch, the dialog references humanity's interaction with the natural environment. I have yet to fully understand Smithson's concept of "entropy," however, the plants in bloom and decay indicate an awareness of the "order to disorder" principle and the idea of "dissipated energy."
This week I also worked on Visions 1 and 2 in preparation for my show in September at the Moncton Gallery, Moncton City Hall. I will be exhibiting work from October 2011 to May 2012. Two canvases will be included, but the rest of the work consists of plywood panels.
