Bodyscapes

January 13, 2013

the sluices, the mudflats
the curved horizons of the body
the slowly drifting clouds
continental drifts
breathing plate-tectonics
marshes and forests-
this and THIS
this is eye-geology
skin astronomy
kinetic archaeology

 

every drawing should be clumsy, must be a struggle; the subject must maintain its presence by remaining a question mark; the artist must fall in love, in that one specific moment, in that time which is not time at all- with his subject ; must use eyes that gaze omnipresently, critically, but without criticism; every stroke should be an embarkation, an opportunity to sink or swim, or to disappear, like moisture, into cracks on the rocks;¬† ideally there would be complete and mutual immersion/annihilation. no wonder artist’s wives and lovers viewed the artist/muse relationship with suspicion
