two sides

There are two sides to everything.
the visible and the invisible
the present and the non-present.
Being cannot be itself without the other also being.
Maurice Merleau-Ponty

rock cut sleeves

When I was growing up, all the women in my house were using needles.  I have always had a fascination with the needle, the magic power of the needle.  The needle is used to repair damage.  It is a claim to forgiveness.
It is not agressive.  It is not a pin.
Louise Bourgeois

Everything I need

"I watched a film of Cezanne painting.  Back and forth in a triangular relationship between the painter, the subject, the painitng.  Morandi did also - he was painting his jars - always in a triangle though.  When I paint, I look at the canvas ont he wall and I paint it.  I move back and forth between my seat and the painting in a straight line , between me and the work.  The painting being the subject and the object all in one.
There is no triangle.
Everything I need to make the painting is in me when I start."  Sean Scully 2016
