Many thanks for your kind review of The Greedy.  I am immersed in the very slow process of understanding this complicated poem Commedia, looking at the distant past, how it relates to the alarming present and the personal.  In these my late years it would be amusing to eventually arrive at Paradiso.  The Greedy, as I recall, is commenting on materialism.

Dear Kristen

I liked your suggestion about the Red Queen/White Queen possibly being a split personality.  Perhaps on some level I am expressing that.  However the real reason is not as interesting..perhaps.  "Alice though the Looking Glass" has always been a favorite of mine, very quotable with interesting insights.  The most interesting, to me, is when she is on a hill and looks over the fields, woods and streams below.  She exclaims "why it is a huge game of chess being played over the whole world" (something like that").  I think "yes indeed".  So the painting is based on a chess board but I wanted to break it down and not make it so rigid.  I tried to figure out, more or less how the moves might work out, for example the knight has moved from his starting spot to forth spot from the left second row down.  The whole piece could be savagely taken apart if one is a chess player.  Different images play the queen, king etc, the pawns remain the same.  That is where the fun was for me.

Come to think of it I have not really answered your question. Of course in chess they are in opposition but perhaps they also can represent the split personality. 

It may need further work.

Many thanks for your kind review of White Queen/Red Queen.  It is very interesting to read a review of a work and consider ideas that I had not previously thought of.

I would be interested in having you review my exhibition photos from the Museo de Arte in Queretaro, Mexico. Is that a possibility?

Thanks in advance,

thanks for your comments from Nov 18 on my painting 'Three Women Eating' - haven't logged in for some time. Your analysis is very perceptive and shows me things I would not have been able to see or put into words myself! Clive. I feel motivated to update my gallery..

Hi, I've just looked at  your art work.  They are so great.  Especially I like the work of donkey.  I like the way you depict the subject.  English is not my mother tongue so I cannot describe how great they are.  But anyway I like the way you use the color.

Thank you for noticing my sculpture and for a positive comment. Installation on pictures is rather a model of biger open-air project which is still in design phase. Finally a colloured area will be made in fresco technique. Here on pictures its dyed acrylic plaster mixed with acrylic paint.

Thank you once agin. Kind Regards,

What a pleasant surprise it was to receive an email from your editor at Artists2artists, informing me that you had reviewed my art. Thank you so much for selecting my work! Your review of my Rusted Painted Can Series is very perceptive, and much appreciated. You clearly understand my vision of creating works that are beautiful, but also reference our societies unending appetite for over consumerism.

We both know, that after 100 years the medium has many names (Readymade/Junk Art/Found Objects/Trash Art/Environmental Art/Eco Art/Green Art/Recycled Art/Repurposed Art, and the latest term that Designers prefer, Up cycled Art) I call my work Ecological Trash Assemblages. People have tried to persuade me not to use the word TRASH to describe my work, telling me that “it’s not good from a marketing standpoint! An Environmentalist since the 70’s, a big part of my mission, is to influence younger artists to work in a medium that is truly good for the planet. By helping to clean up TRASH from the environment (Think Global-Act Local) and by diverting TRASH from our local landfills. In addition the use of TRASH reduces an artist’s carbon footprint by not relying solely on new materials (my works are created from a minimum of 85% post-consumer materials TRASH).

I have admired El Anatsui’s work for years.  His masterpieces are such gorgeous tapestries, as well as being so eco friendly. I have built up a sizeable inventory of old rusty cans that are over 50+ years old, and plan on working in a much larger scale in the near future.

I particularly like the end of your review, when you wrote “I also find it of note that the wall sculptures maintain this geometric regularity, and while haptically charged, they never fully succumb to the organic modulation on their two-dimensional support. They are particularly salient on the active surface in piece #11”.  Again I thank you for writing such an excellent review of my work.  Largely self taught, I always feel honored when someone of your academic background understands the true artistic merit of my work. Can I have permission to quote you?  :)
