I introduced one of my students to the two pieces of work shown here by Diogo Pimentao.
During the conversation I was reminded about an experiment I had started but had yet to resolve. I am going to make some work based on the layering of fractured surfaces. The texture will be different to the folded paintings and I am sure this disparity will emphasise rather than detract if both are hung in close proximity.
Using the rectangle, my aim for C05 was to not express, but bring to expression the formal characteristics of mass, weight, gravity, volume.
Through compressing, twisting and pushing the skin of paint physically, the rectangle’s objectivity remains the same, however through intuition, form is now able to present itself. Both dimensions are cited.
