Other Notes

There is No Seam

Painting by Louis Finkelstein "Hanover Center II" 1998, oil on canvas, 38 x 42 inches

Notes from "Thoughts About Painting" by Louis Finkelstein from "Painterly Painting," 1971

"Between technique, vision, design, expression there is no seam; neither is one thing the cause and another the result."

Aim for the Big Look

Art by Christian Rohlfs

Aim for the Big Look:
  • tough
  • brutal
  • uncompromising articulation of imagery & idea
  • extremes of technique, like most sensitive line ever, or thickest body of paint.

The need must find the idea & method.

Work inspires inspiration. Keep working. If you succeed, keep working. If you fail, keep working. If you’re interested, keep working. If you’re bored, keep working.

— Michael Crichton
