The fool has resurfaced; a mischievous character who taxes me greatly but never fails to expose a reality stripped of all illusion. Concurrent to a cycle of brilliant mistakes, I was revisiting the acrylic medium. Seeking respite from the impasto of oil, I wanted something liquid and transparent, something immediate – a lightness of being. A switch in medium demands a shift in sensibility and attunement.
Process driven, I produced several interesting pieces serendipitously unveiling ‘a fool’s paradise’. Breakthrough!
