Old

For the most part what I show here is my most recent work. But this is a painting that I did about two years ago.

And this is a fragment of one I did about 15 years ago. My art doesn't grow. I am doing the same thing that I did when I was twelve. The art is not progressing in any linear fashion. It's not something that is developing. It's more like I am excavating, scraping away to reveal what's underneath. The art I do is nothing new. It's old. Something buried in the Unconscious that is retrieved.

The first one is my favorite. The background colors are lovely. What are the symbols?

Thanks Indie. The meaning of the symbols is unknown to me. I try to keep the symbols ambiguous so that the meaning comes from the viewer's subjectivity. Like a Rorschach inkblot test. The painting as a whole and abstract painting as a whole can be considered to be a symbol of the Unconscious.

Ok! I'll give it another look then and let it suggest itself to me.

That you call it lovely, that you enjoy it for its aesthetic value, means that I've succeeded. But if the forms bring up personal associations that are meaningful for you too, that's a bonus. If that's happened and you want to share, please do. I'm often delightfully surprised at what others see in my scribblings.
