I have been working on a number of projects behind-the-scenes which have me thinking about simplicity and cohesion. I feel the need to organize something like I did with these pieces in a grid. This form of visual tidy up arranges parts to form a whole. Yet I also like to create concise imagery. I feel my work really is an amalgam of austerity and profusion because there is a need for both at times. So yesterday I began a series of small works, titled "short stories" with the piece above being the first. I like it. This way of working clears my head and forces me choose carefully while not subtracting just a little bit of wit. Also during this time I have also been making arrangements in my head, and feel it is about time to put one together.
Tomorrow I believe I will share some favorites that have an organized flair,
