experiment 179.1 (not a painting but a found piece of film)


experiment 179.1, originally uploaded by m_napper.

....scribbled notes, crude drawings, traces of dry pigment patched over and buried by thick passages of oil paint, discord and disjunction of line, surface, tone, evoking associations of flesh, earth, landscape, broken communication...visceral transmission of reticent desires.....shame scratched on and over, the surface a topography of intimacy and introversion, an artifact of desire and denial....
An incident of chaos in a bucolic field.......A puncture in the plane......a moment of loss....a moment of resurrection......
The word or gesture "seeping"/"emerging" from the "fissure" or crevice......could be a fragment of a word, handwritten in script.....Doubt......that is a particularly instrumental and inherent aspect of what the work is about. The same can be said about life in general.

fragments redux





An incident of chaos in a bucolic field.......A puncture in the plane......a moment of loss....a moment of resurrection......


-blood: dominant in cheerful, optimistic types
-black bile: which renders a soul gloomy and melancholic
-yellow bile<: the source of irritable and angry attitudes
-phlegm: ruling cool, detached and unemotional types


.... pot-holes in the work, disjunctive areas, hints at imbalance, incompletion, loss....


+vague itinerary
+feverish, but also porous
+Payne’s Gray
+diminished conciousness
+acknowledgment of imperfection
+"seeping/emerging"
+Stains, fragments, shards, splinters, memories, echos, ghosts, traces, rudimentary frames, whispers, dust, notes.


Doubt......that is a particularly instrumental and inherent aspect of what the work is about.


an artifact of desire and denial....
