DEVELOPING OPINIONS: ON LOOKING AT ELLSWORTH KELLEY PRINTS @ NORTON SIMON

That's life. Will the big guy on top crush the little guy on bottom? Cheering on the little guy to hold on. Don't give up! I found the upper guy oppressive. And what's up with the place they seem to touch? Were they separable? Inseparable? How long until I see it as a Whole Object in Balance?







Three times I missed the difference.
I thought I forgot to copy the other one and send it along.
I thought I took another photo of the same image.
The short term memory loss is crazy making.
I must remind myself that I am skilled.
Reliable beyond my idea.



Multiples like scales practiced.
Mathematical?
Which one do I like?
Thinking about looking at photo contact sheet through a loupe.
Looking for that distinction?
Perfect one?
Choices.

YELLOW ASSUMED
Primari-ly but not primary.
Blue, Orange and Green
Is the same amount of yellow included in both orange and green?
Is this  yellow what makes the composition hold together?

LEAP FROG
The tombstone says we add the yellow.
I don't miss it at all.
I like the whilte of the
5 distinct panels of color.
Yellow hops over white like a child caught in an ambivalent divorce of parents with joint custody.
 But what if ...
Flipped?

PENETRATION OR IMPOSITION? 
Which one?

NATURE VS NURTURE?
Something is becoming ...
In the process 

COLOR CAPTURES ATTENTION
Making room for strong opinions


Random thoughts looking for PATTERNS
Yellow hops over white
