On a spring afternoon in 1992, my 6 year old daughter came up the stairs to my 3rd floor studio as I was finishing this drawing. Neil Young’s song Only Love Can Break Your Heart was playing on the radio. A line from this song captured my attention. I wrote I was always thinking across the top of the drawing, and asked my daughter, as she stood next to the drawing board, What am I always thinking about?. Without hesitation, she answered About me. and then about school and about playing. And so, the full title became: I was Always Thinking (about Aurora and about School and Playing) .

From a one of kind artists’ book, March 1996 (copyright 1997),that folds like a road map and opens into one flat sheet, this detail of an upright human figure with an unexplained non-human head  floats within a concrete grid pattern. Its about the kind of thinking and sensing that does not use words and cannot answer questions .

SECOND SIGHT is a 24 month project to revisit, reconnect, and share 30+ years of my own studio work (drawing, works on paper, artists books, installations) and featuring work, ephemera and  projects of other artists that have enriched my personal and working life over this time period.

 

Via weekly posts that move forward by linking some aspect of the previous post to the current one and using tags as a creative way to search the ongoing entries – Second Sight will grow into an alternative archive.

 

I invite you to join me at any and all points during this probably odd but hopefully compelling voyage.
