my MoMA Techniques of Post-War Abstract Painting course is near ended
abstraction and i remain wary friends
though, as with any art history i digest
it is the artist’s personal story that is most satisfying
getting inside their minds
to find similar comforting twisted thinking
Ad Reinhardt’s tree “How To Look At Modern Art in America”
i am particularly fond of Ad Reinhart’s take, in which i find all
i like a strong voice alongside a strong image
take for example Adam the Great!
(my affectionate name for artist, instructor, friend Adam F. Davidson)
Adam F. Davidson – Palette Knife #12 2010 above my staircase
before i was familiar with his work Adam introduced me to his discourse
thoughtful honest clarity
after, his work and i were introduced
it went very well
then to learn some of Adam as an artist, some of his technique
my acquisition has depth of meaning
what a treat!
thank you to my mentors, both online and in the real world
for their knowledge
i am grateful and better for it on many levels
p.s. i see MoMA has added some new courses just in time
