Musings from a Yankee artist abroad in London...
Big Shifts are Usually Camouflaged
What do I mean by proposing that big shifts are usually camouflaged? Looking at the piece to the left, anyone familiar with my work over the years could easily think, "Wow, what a big shift, what the heck happened?" And in fact, I actually thought that myself... isn't it funny that artists are the last ones to identify the patterns in their own work? But after looking at photographs of pieces I'd been working on, I realized a "Big Shift" in my work had already taken place a couple of weeks before, it had simply been camouflaged by the use of familiar materials and palette. Life, outside the studio, is the same...the big shifts are usually camouflaged.
