Notes on the negative.

I Have been working in the studio preparing for the Parcours d’art Avignon this week, and making connections between things, the drawings the prints and the newer sprayed works. All deal with negatives and touch and it was not until I put up the work side by side that I could see that so clearly.

The photos that I have been using over the winter of the burnt wood always in retrospect are miss leading, as they fill in the gap between what I’ve just seen and the slowness of making the work in the studio……starting with a lot of information and reducing.  I am most pleased with Echo because it is so direct and it also has the feel that I wanted or a kind of claustrophobia or almost aquarium type feeling that the forrest has taken on in these last few months.
