Building on the earlier sketches, I’ve begun making larger paintings using the same initial images and extracts from the I Ching and Tao Te Ching. I mistakenly chose a different page from the latter, thereby adding a further layer of randomisation.
I like both of these this time. I find the palette appealing and the simplicity somehow peaceful. I do need to have a discussion with myself about the level of abstraction here and whether there is sufficient retention of a representational element to give viewers a clue as to what’s going on. I suspect there may not be. Animations may follow as updates to this post.
At present, I’m seeing these two paintings as preparatory but, as in a previous section of this module, they may become part of the submission. The next set will have its own post – A2 painting #2.
