Wassily Kandinsky, 1908, Murnau - Castle Courtyard I,
oil on cardboard, 33x 44.3 cm, The State Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow

Wassily Kandinsky, 1908, Munich-Schwabing with the Church of Saint Ursula

i recently struck up a conversation with someone on the eugene gallery scene about painting on a black ground. in april we had a double show with two local artists: jamie burress (who does really cool, statement making stained glass art, among other talents) and mona zilllah. mona paints a variety of different subjects from sea creatures (like those in her show at Fenario) and hens and roosters, etc, on a black ground. i referenced the early, folkloric works of wassily kandinsky who also painted his canvases black. the conversation sparked an interesting exhibit idea in my head. perhaps, somewhere down the road when the mood of the work suits the idea, we can paint the gallery black (I mean all black, ceilings and all) and change the hours to evening hours, so the work can truly POP from a black ground. 

No I am not a vampire, drug addict or insomniac.

But I do like black. No harm in that.
