Profound wisdom / insight of the day

“Abstract art can stand in meaningful relation to your own perception, you can move across a canvas in a way that you move through the spaces of the world… notions of space like proximity and distance can be revealed by moving across a canvas with a brush”

Albert Irvin

John Cage

In homage to one of my biggest inspirations, John Cage on what would have been his 106th birthday (yesterday) here is one of my pieces from 2016 replicating his indeterminate processes from his Ryoanji series of prints. On art, Cage said; “Art is a way of life. It is for all the world like taking a bus, picking flowers, making love, sweeping the floor, getting bitten by a monkey, reading a book, etc…Art is not separate from life (nor is dish-washing when it is done in this spirit)”.
