A Sunday picture.
A picture to express my feelings and those around me about what happened and what’s to come. A feeling that only art can capture, A feeling that is coming close to grief. Grief for a way of life that has come to an end. A way of life that will be something else in the future. That would be okay, but everything is still hazy. There a lot of unknown knowns.
I was looking at some new David Hockney art which was produced solely on an iPad. Welcome to the digital world. I thought why not? For the bulk of my work, 95% of it is digital. The remaining 5% my be film, but I still scan it to be able to work on it.
I found some new editing apps for my phone. I started playing and testing. Most of my work was done in some kind of etheral black and white filtering. I wanted to see what it would so with color work. I made the original base layer and added more and more. Somewhere in the middle of this work I had an idea. A concept to work toward. For me, this picture is about the hard work and sorrow that goes on in a hospital in the era of Covid-19. And, grief.
It might be something different to you. That’s okay.
I’d tell you what app and what I did. I have no idea what I did. I use to write this stuff down. I found that stopping to write gets in the way of the flow of the work. And, the app? heh, heh, heh.
Stay safe. Enjoy every sandwich.
