Nick (In Progress)

My next senior studio piece. I just started it today so its got awhile to go.

Today was also of note because artist Rick Berry came in and talked today. He had alot of wise words but one thing in particular stood out to me. When you’re working on a piece, don’t be afraid to introduce enigmatic force (for instance painting over and scraping away or introducing a random process of marks). When you do this the weak aspects of your work will lose force and the strong aspects will become more clear. You can then step in to emphasize the strong points and move forward. It’s an interesting concept that requires a lot of courage, but definitely something to keep in mind.
