Abstract

The second book that continues from the first NIGHT RAINBOWS 1. The book is about a series of propositions that are held in stasis, that moment between pressing forward and/or getting to a point where a series of words, images or fragments start to tell a story but are left open for further breath. Whether through making picture designs for future artworks, or just leaving them ‘as is’ or putting what seems endless amounts of individual words together to make sense of the world, the studio has always been a place of escape from the world but is a world all unto itself. The artistic collages examine the intuitive rather than the formal concerns and concepts of abstraction, through an exploration of the biomorphic and formal structures inherent in art and forms of construction within the built (architecture). As a result, this work continues to experiment with and explore the interlocking forms of spatial reconfiguration through varying methods of representation and abstraction. This interlocking visual structure is what I also use in the writing I have undertaken over the years mixing a combination of the personal and observational to construct various narratives as human surveillance, the architecture of perception. This could be called personal architecture, a way of mining the singular that is contained in the whole. Whether it is a collage, a poem, a piece of what seemingly looks like abstract prose, this book contains the starting points for a variety of art and music activities. These propositions are started in my studio and then transferred to a canvas, as a wall painting or placed within a song to be recorded, placed in an album, and released, and then finally performed live. These aesthetic resolutions collectively are about making fields (artwork/writing) that govern a layered reading for the viewer and/or reader.
