|A Gathering of Spectators, 22 x 22, acrylic on paper|
Lately, I've been paying attention to how people gather. In this painting, it seems to me that just as these three spectators are watching me, I watch them, too. So, the gathering is really not just about them, it is about the viewers of the painting, too. Them. Us. Back and forth. Watching. And gathering.
Probably because this notion disturbs me, this song comes to my mind. The Undisputed Truth. "Smiling Faces Sometimes."
