A Brief Non-Steampug-Related Interlude

I just completed this:

Intrusion #1

With this painting (and those that will follow it), I’m trying to get back to some basic aesthetic experimentation.  In this case, the test-subject is the interaction of organic and inorganic elements, particularly the intrusion of organic elements into inorganic spaces, and vice versa.

The resulting confrontation is to be approached in an animistic spirit, with both object and space invested with intentionality- that is to say, the object exists actively; it regards its surroundings and, by the same token, its surroundings regard it.  This remains however an essentially aesthetic project, and so a secondary concern emerges: intentionality as an aesthetic quality.
