Sep 2010, CONVERSING solo show, MARS….the work

• LISTEN to audio of Geoffrey Smith’s opening speech

In contrast to my painting over the last decade, the CONVERSING paintings are concerned with essence rather than elaboration, with contemplation rather than confrontation. Yet there is a continuing logic in their structure and references to threads that run through my history as I continue to leap about between, music, painting, drawing, sculpting, sounding and performing.

These paintings insisted on being realized despite my circumstances. I had started some drawings after a long hiatus in visual work and was also deep into a music project but they demanded my attention and would not let go until I had completed the first series. This comprised the Mars show. Two more paintings from the show are not included here.
