As I’m working on the third painting in the Cube’s Cycle series I’ve become aware that for the moment I’m heading into different directions with my art. In one sense abstract seems to fit the bill but conceptual seems like a good description as well.
Given a preference I think conceptual is better, but wouldn’t you know, that term is already being used. So I’m going to have to think of something else. Certainly what I’m doing with Cube’s Cycle is trying to express a concept or at the very least a theme.
I’m sure that somewhere in the bowels of artdom is a term that describes what I’m doing. In my studies of art I never paid that much attention to terminology. I was always more interested in technique and mechanics.
This isn’t my first foray into expressing ideas through my art. Doorway and Or are other examples. I’m certainly enjoying this direction and I plan on continuing.
