The Earth is the Earth Because it is Nothing Other Than the Earth

PNI, London

It’s deceptive that Artworks are considered the natural expression of an idea.

Making a decision undergoes a genesis which is blind. Without visible form, not- image.

Therefore, paradoxically, mental pictures don't give rise to pictures. Its the latter that illuminates the former.

The Earth is the Earth, precisely because it is nothing other than the Earth. A terrible consensus. Imagine all the worlds it isn’t, an infinity.

When clambering over the countless little failures and could-have-beens which constitute each line or colour, (ordinarily described as making choices), the artist ends up loving the worlds concreteness.

In this acceptance there is the recognition of a more primordial starting point than the privileged ‘idea’.

An affirmation to do rather than not.
