...one does not put oneself in place of the past, one adds a new link. Paul Cezanne
Well on my way in my book Evolution Through Art, 190 pages, 42,000 words — one and a half chapters to go. Part Three of the book is called Freedom with its chapters, Deliverance, Evolution, and The Sublime. Mastery, innovation, and independence are the key to our evolutionary future. I discuss advancements such as the color of light (French Impressionists), then move on to my contemporaries with their: endless variations on the human figure; rich psychological themes; the ends and means problem and its solution; organic compositional balance of positive and negative spaces; light perspective; and ultimate states of being.
This is the fun part of the book, I get to pick apart the exceptional qualities of visual artists and resolve the polarities that have plagued artists forever. And celebrate my mantra that when you see problems, concrete solutions are the answer.
There isn’t a time frame yet for publishing, get the book done, perhaps in a month, then on setting up the publishing and launch. This has been an amazing journey, guiding me through the quarantine period from its beginning.
