Covered Sky, Blue Shores, Sign of Life, Digging Around

Posted: May 1, 2011 in Page 1: The Interface Paintings

2011
Dimensions: 90 by 75 cm, framed.
Media: Paint on wood panel, with wood structure.

The square forms at the upper left and lower right are pieces of the wood surface panel that have been dug out—with the dug-out pieces being dumped next to their ‘holes’. The orderly squares, lined up vertically, at the bottom left establish a direct link with the “interface.” They have been inspired by the type of legend that is commonly used in helping one to understand a graph. That the legend doesn’t help much in explaining that which can not be understood is to be expected. Refer to title.

Important: The relationship with the interface-frame, is literally accomplished through the legend. The legend not only plays the conventional role of explaining the visual subject at hand (which one would normally take to be the center, ‘framed’ part of the work), it attracts us to the fact that the interface itself is part of the main subject.
