acts of art 14 – Richard Potter

“It’s somebody just scratching on the wall.”

“If you take yourself out of the equation you’re allowing the painting to develop as it needs to…”

placing this here and that there,

adding colour

or not,

mezcal, moodling,

miles davis,

looking through squinted eyes,

listening to the surface,

gluing, scraping,

pacing, pondering,

placing that there and this here,

layering, leaving,

returning, ruminating,

touching up, tuning down,

moodling more mezcal,

free falling,

asking what if,

adding, eliminating,

destroying, building,


looking again,

click, click,

done, done

and done.

‘The 100′ series was initiated by my 100th Post in April 2012. As text and images are the essence of my blog my intention is to present 100 pieces of text based art from historical and contemporary artists and from my own hand. To view the series to date click on ‘The 100’ in my Category Menu.
