A painting can be a page on which to examine and maybe disrupt the syntax of thought: 

the pink is coming going looking, the yellow could be said to be going nowhere preening


If reading is dark, I mark to sense. A parcel of visual patter. Something can change.


Thinking comes before making, it comes through form -- fragments using themselves, “not depicting ” -- the site of a swerve or a fold, force of an edge that looks as if no hand made it. Something sharp, clean-edged asserts and later a shaky hand or a shadow, body-based, cast by its own interior.


two tiny aqua shapes resemble a pair of sunglasses or maybe a bra

thin black lines and a small square could be a face, a banner, a profile or a shield


The picture is not the wish. Wish -- so light a word it hardly stays on the page where it is written,

the place beyond which words become limit.
