Blue on white, October 2013. Acrylics on canvas, 39.5 cm x 39.5 cm
Again I buried an old work, and again the process of doing so invigorated me. It's not unlike stopping a bleed, or turning off a screeching fan in the car at a long journey. The sense of liberation thereupon guided a carefree composition, I could invest in the canvas again with impunity. This might have influenced my frivolous use of strong colour. Blue has many contemplative properties, but is just because of this quite tricky to use. What if I don't intend to create a contemplative work? Or aren't all works contemplative? How shall I define "contemplative"? But above all; does these considerations matter? Blue is blue, and applied on (or alongside) white it's simply blue on white, or blue alongside white.
