finding a truth for one’s work

 

Artwork by Channa Horwitz

 

I came to do what I do
by giving up all that I was trained to do.
Life drawing, easel painting, abstraction etc.

I chose to use the least number of choices
and have a reason for any choice I made.

I was searching for a truth for my work.

I did not want to be influenced by any one else.

So, closely following my nose
and asking questions of my last work
I came to do my next work.
The phrase I asked was,
“What would happen if I…?”

That simple question lead me down a strange path
and to a body of very personal work.
