A while ago I mentioned Alan Fletcher and his observations-, and an idea that I’ve been developing. It involves writing and over-writing, in my case on a grey base – it’s visual word association though in some instances there is some sort of significance to the final image – the darkness of the one entitled Despair and the more light-hearted notion of the six strings in Guitar. Let me know what you think.
If you’re interested in the creative process and you have never come across Alan Fletcher, you don’t know what you’re missing: his magnum opus The Art of Looking Sideways is marvellous. This concept is from a less ambitious work called ‘Painting and Poeting’ ithe title coming from quote of Kurt Schwitters- though Fletcher himself thinks this is unlikely . . .
