This blog traces my influences, studio practice, learning, and teaching of art.
I presented a power point titled "The Figure in Geometry, How I Became a Neoclassic Artist" at the Ohio Art Education Assoc. Convention. This etching done in 1975 reigns supreme in my understanding of dynamic shapes. Buckminster Fuller's ideas about the square being a shape connoting contraction affected me deeply.
When I pulled this small cat print at the Cleveland Institute of Art, the print instructor, H. Caroll Cassill, ceremoniously and silently returned a pile of bombastic abstract prints I had made. I got the message. This etching is of my pair of Siamese. After hearing a radio add for free cats on WMMS, I adopted them. They were smart enough to play fetch and raced around the Coventry apartment at all hours.
