What’s done for December 12, 2017

I’m not sure these paintings are complete. Especially the “Digestive System”, but this is what I have to date. These paintings will be put aside for several months before I decide if they are done yet.

Although at the beginning I attempted to add a lot of meaning and intent to the composition (medical diagramming, health authority budget numbers and technology) towards the end I worked more intuitively, playing with colour and editing out the literal content.

I appreciated being able to take time on these works this semester, as opposed to rapidly producing works on a weekly basis. I find working slowly, changing, correcting, adjusting, editing and actually allows a lot of other idea’s to percolate. I like using painting as a method for thinking.
