Abstract 073116

Today’s inspiration came from a Miró print a customer brought in today. I don’t remember the title, but I was impressed by its form. A triangular shape dominated the composition. Within the triangle was an eye. I have been working with diamond shapes; eyes have also been a factor in my recent studies (More Grids, Cyclopean Vision,  Planes, Grids and Curves). Eyes are important to me. They represent connection. From my childhood until this day, my older brother rarely looked me in the eye. He is very low functioning, autistic and nonverbal. Once, I captured one of his eyes looking directly at me (The Eyes Have It, The Other Mike). Mike’s eyes are mis-aligned; rarely do they both seem to look in the same direction at the same time.

I have no narrative for the painting below. I borrowed the shapes from my memory of the Miró print I saw today and continued experimenting with the grid form.
