UN SANDPIPER

Here is one of my attempts at creating something without a specific subject matter. It seems to me that to create something emotive and effective without a direct visual message is very difficult, far more difficult than creating an image full of opaque signifiers.

Originally intended to be a part two of my sandman painting (see Work In Progress #Z), I ended up reacting to my friend Craig’s conversation and began improvising with oil paint smudged on a plastic cd sleeve, followed by some vigorous sanding (so very vigorous) and some different shades of white in the middle. I really enjoy looking at it, and it is very difficult not adding more, and for that reason I will not add anymore, good or bad, it will forever remain an experiment in simplicity.
