Divertimento (1996) 16mm, color, 2 min

Genre: Experimental

This, painted in the hospital while recovering from cancer surgery in 1996, is -- it seems to me -- very related to De Kooning's Alzheimer's paintings. The mind, here, is seeking a "blank" and/or holding fast to tendrils of meaning which are stripped so bare as to be purely reflective of flesh tissue and irregular strands of cells.
