Working Note 10th April 2007

"Suddenly one realizes that the sensation is not one of space or [of] an object in space. It has nothing to do with space and its manipulations. The sensation is the sensation of time – and all other multiple feelings vanish like the outside landscape."
[Barnett Newman 1949]


Drawing Notes 12th January 2007

Pure white, 220g/m, matt surface, dense and strong, withstands erasure and reworking, universal application, especially good for pencil and crayon drawings, chalk, pastel and charcoal.

always drawing
never making a drawing
a breathless notation.

tearing up
torn-up
tracings.

held horizontally
in the middle of the page.

nothing special
“I found that closing my eyes was very helpful to me".

smashes down
half-erased
repetitive
starting and breaking
a sense of place
visible coefficients.

a kind of ground zero
exposure
and openness
no such thing as a renewal.

answer easy questions
raise suspicions.

huge expanses
minutely detailed.

dense black
shimmering white
claustrophobic and abstract.

the blank
skitter and flicker
precarious thrashing.

arabesques
disrupted and mocking
full of knowing pleasure
superfluous
urgent.

hardly visionary
add nothing
just walk.

gestural scribblings
effortless
thick drawings.

glimpsed in passing
possibilities.

randomly arranged
half-demolished
stacked
strips
paper.

pinks
and lavenders.

redundant
shut down
final propositions
without interesting possibilities.

specificity
is misleading.

black and white
dabs
stark black
outlined
overflowing.

smudging
smearing
dabbing.
 
complete darkness.
mocking the legacy.

blindness
imagined
as yet unseen.

the sky is the limit.

such as trees
a horizontal line
parallel.

Fernand Leger: Les Constructeurs 1951
