Haptic painted and drawn to Brian Eno & DJ J. Peter Schwalm’s Drawn from Life: “Like Pictures, Part #2″ and “Night Traffic.”
This is 8 1/2 x 11″ painted on canvas in acrylics with a brush, a brush-handle end, and a wooden stick. Drawn on a day when my confidence was at a low ebb. Something about the music, though, felt courageous to me, and carried me on. Using the brush handle end reminded me of early paintings I did in which I ground and cut into the canvas, and in some cases stitched it back together. Sometimes I find it necessary to make that kind of gesture in order to cut through the miasma.
