In creating a piece there is often a tension caused by the difference of the marks more heavily influenced by thought and those influenced by impulse. This is not a tension that necessarily needs to be resolved. Spontaneous gestures themselves will result in rhythmic forms that, once present, can be developed or expanded upon in a multitude of ways. The question of how to make these into a final work can be answered with the broadest of solutions which is to simply guide one’s impulse without blocking it’s essence. It is unfair to describe such a process without recognizing the infinite number of mysterious and indescribable elements that transform a visual statement into a physical object of value. However, any language when analyzed can confuse one just as easily as it can be explained, and the effect of any type of human expression is as varied as the people open to receiving it.

I know it's a trek for some to drive all the way to College Park...but did I mention that they have FREE WINE and BEER? And of course, you will get to see Ed and I which will be no doubt worth the drive ;).
See you soon,
