Struggling to abstraction??

I am challenging myself to find a way to break this down, to break away from perspective and proportion, to alter the objective view in a way which reveals something of myself and my place in the world.  In the process I am attempting to expand (or obliterate?) the details, the minutia, to a point where something essential is revealed.  In a way it's almost like an exercise in philosophical reasoning, I think.  In some ways, for me, reading philosophy is like absorbing the history of man on earth, in a condensed version where ultimate questions dominate and from the complexity a truth could be revealed.  If I'm lucky enough to understand what I've read!!

This work is very slow.  I'm wondering if I do myself a disservice by plodding along?

November-December Exhibit/something new, too

I will have two pieces exhibited in the upcoming Sixth Annual Small Works Exhibit at the Dedee Schattuck Gallery in Westport, Massachusetts.  I am quite pleased and proud to be included in this annual event and appreciate being invited and selected.  Dedee Schattuck Gallery is an exceptional venue situated on the Massachusetts south coast.  The gallery space includes a superb display area with vaulted ceiling and large windows overlooking beautiful grounds.
