The main things: I have been working with the figure from invention which has created a lot of weird and bad stuff but also been very, very satisfying.
I have been pushing myself consciously away from so much white and 'atmospheric fog' as I call it. Trying to establish different sense of space which has brought me to working with a lot of blue and black. I can't decide if I am now relying on it in the same way as the white but I don't think so.
Unconsciously, I have started doing a lot of scraping and wiping through to previous layers which in person has added to the surface in a way I like.
I have continued to try to make paintings I have never made before: especially in color and composition; attempting to both empty out and fill entirely in terms of comp.
I put a couple other things on my website too. It feels good and weird to have so many new things floating around. I'm just not sure what to make of them. I don't feel like they completely belong to me yet, if you know what I mean? All these strange new personalities marching around the studio.
