clanging birds


acrylic, charcoal and conte on paper

56 x 36 cm


Sometimes when we describe we use conflicting words. The sounds that inspired this painting sounded like clanging birds. The red terracotta background highlights the shapes or abstract figures. A narrative might be imagined to explain the elements. I suppose a deep muddy influence and reminiscences from the famous Zenga painting   “Blind men crossing a bridge” by Hakuin Ekaku.
