Images of the mind are impossible to tie down. They change the moment I begin to make marks on the painting surface. The marks themselves begin suggesting something else. The numbers (as titles) do not indicate the order in which the works were made. They serve as designations only. I believe that the use of numbers in place of titles should prevent the viewer searching for a subject.
This painting seems to feed off number 1. I wasn’t aware that it was happening at the time, and only became aware when I looked at a group of the pieces together. Usually I put the work away as soon as it’s dry enough and try to forget what I’ve done.
