This is one of several things going on in the studio. This painting was sanded down and "ornamentated" into a surprisingly refined piece. I am reconfiguring small junk panels. I am reworking some of the earlier large shaped panels. I am considering a new context for the large shaped panels. What if they become "image generators" for various ongoing bodies of work? Some of these larger paintings have passages which could become, or inspire, a more simple "single statement" painting. What if the large panels are never completed, but rather evolve over time, giving me ideas, and directing paths of exploration. They would truly become both a practical and a metaphorical creator. The "ID" in the titles has always stood for "Intelligent Designer". It's all probably a little too resolved, too much of a plan, for my temperment. But I'll keep it in mind as a possible phantom framework in which to work.
