Meaning

I don’t have to put any thought into driving what my paintings will mean.

It’s struck me how true this simple statement is and how much it conveys.

Meaning is never something concocted and attached to a work of art. Meaning is what emerges as the work develops. Meaning is woven into the strands of what the work has, to use Cezanne’s term, realized.

To insist otherwise is to debase…, life.
