Hillel... Well, full credit to you for being so cool about this work - if I were you I'd be jumping up and down with excitement!Please say a few words about this - do you see it as an advance forward, or just an interesting experiment?At any rate, I see it as bursting with sculptural significance, and would dearly like to see you venture more into three dimensions.
J-P, your enthusiasm for this piece surprised me. As I told you I was convalescing and found it difficult to paint standing and I was looking for something I could do while seated.I had this box from IKEA and kind of visualized two semi-transparent figures within. I wanted to see how they interplayed from all sides but I certainly didn't see it as sculptural project, more like a painting with five sides. When I finished it just seemed to me to be a decorated box. I thought I'd been really stupid and should have done five seperate small canvases based on the same premise because I actually quite liked the sides as individual paintings rather than the whole. But your reaction is causing me to rethink the whole thing. I'd really intended this to be a one-off but now I think I might try doing another. Thanks for your comments.
