4 SCRATCH-SCRAWL PAINTINGS (Ink)
On arriving home from a visit to Chicago a number of years ago. (I’m not from USA).
I rapidly did four scratch-scrawl paintings (as I call them) of the impression left on me by the city.
They of course are not topographical by any stretch of the imagination.
What I feel is liberating to the viewer is their own inherent ability to allow their imagination to see things, or invent things, within the scrawled landscape.
Kind of like daydreaming their own scene and imposing a narrative for the suggested sidewalks, avenues or streets.
In the maze of lines there is a scene you can see – somewhere.
