Ah I like Richards comment as far as starting with materials goes. That's how I work too. I really like both of these Ken.

Thank you, ma'am.
Yeah, I wonder how many people really work starting with a preconceived idea or emotion they want to, as Richard says, "express." I can understand if the art is from the beginning planned as political or social commentary but other than that, I have a tough time with it. Maybe a poll is in order

I think it would make for an interesting discussion.

I like both this and "Untitled 220" - there's a feeling of commitment to materials and process, and they're both good looking.

Thanks, Richard.
I like your comment/idea "commitment to materials and process" not necessarily in relation to my work but, in general, as part of what drives us to make the art we do.

Yes, that's very much what mine is about... rather than beginning with "an idea" which I "express", I begin with the material - maybe an idea comes along later, maybe not.

I'm with you. There was a long discussion in my drawing class about this very subject. The teacher insisted that it's better to have the idea in mind --the emotion you want to convey before you start. I didn't disagree with her but I sure don't work that way. For me it's much more of a dialogue with the materials and process. -- a circular call and response.

I could maybe see the approach your teacher spoke of if the work as it's done is in dialogue with the idea so it can change as you go ahead... unless it's some sort of topical commission as you said to Diane. Well, different strokes for different folks.
